Internet users have found a disturbing detail in footage of teenager Cameron Robbins after he jumped overboard from a cruise ship, and a new theory explains the teen’s disappearance and possible death.
Robbins graduated from Baton Rouge’s Louisiana State University Laboratory School with a glow of sentimental glory on May 21. That same day, the 18-year-old Robbins embarked on a cruise through the Bahamas in the company of his classmates, celebrating the milestone in their lives. Two days later, the seafaring teenager jumped overboard into the ocean, reportedly on a dare, from which act of derring-do he has yet to return.
In a video, a dark shape is seen moving through the water toward Robbin, causing observers to speculate that Robbins was the victim of an attack from a shark or other aquatic predator. The area where he went missing is reportedly rich with marine life, much of it unfriendly to human swimmers, including tiger sharks and bull sharks.
In a statement to Fox News Digital, United Cajun Navy spokesman Brian Trascher said that the video was inconclusive.
“We definitively don’t have anything conclusive enough to determine if Cameron Robbins came in contact with any marine life.” Trascher said. “We are consulting with professors at the LSU Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences for expertise.”
Regardless of what predatory marine life he may or may not have come in contact with, the situation looks grim for Cameron’s loved ones. The Coast Guard’s search for the missing high school graduate, which spanned over 300 miles and lasted two days, was called off last Friday, with the Coast Guard offering condolences to Robbins’ family and friends.
Bahamian naval captain Commodore King said in an update on Monday, “The probability of survival decreases significantly, particularly if a person did not have on a life vest and particularly if a person is perceived to be intoxicated.”
“It is so unfortunate, but I don’t want the family to lose hope,” King added.
