Mollie Halpern: This is Amy Lynn Bradley.

The talented basketball player and college graduate disappeared while on a family vacation when she was just 23 years old.

It happened on a Royal Caribbean International cruise liner, Rhapsody of the Seas, somewhere between Aruba and Curacao, Netherlands Antilles.

Special Agent Erin Sheridan says just a few days into the trip, on March 23, 1998, Amy and her brother had a night out.

Erin Sheridan: So that evening, Amy was out at the disco with her brother, other passengers, and crew socializing and having a great time. In the morning, when her parents and her brother woke, Amy was gone.

Halpern: Amy’s brother Brad was the last family member to see her.

Brad Bradley: Myself and my parents have had to endure a lot of sadness, but the last thing that I ever said to Amy was, “I love you,” before I went to sleep that night. Knowing that that’s the last thing I said to her has always been very comforting to me.

Halpern: Investigators say so many details of Amy’s night out remain a mystery.

A reward of up to $25,000 is available for information leading to the resolution of Amy’s case.

Sheridan: If you have any information—whether it be that you were a passenger or a crew member—we ask that you come forward. The smallest detail could assist us in finding out what happened to Amy.

Halpern: These are age-progressed photographs of what Amy could look like today.

Amy has several tattoos, including a sun, a gecko lizard, and a Tasmanian devil spinning a basketball.
