(Near) – Giglio Island, Italy – It appears there may have been unregistered passengers (stowaways)  aboard the Costa Concordia of over 4200, (including staff and crew) and more may be missing, than the original 20 that had been previously reported.

It’s a practice that has been in place forever, and it’s more unusual in the last hundred years but it still does go on, in ships, planes and yes, on trains.

Reports say that Hungarian passenger relative has come forward and said their daughter may have been on the Costa Concordia, and not a ticketed passenger. Some get on in many different ways and if that is the case, many more may be missing than the amount of about 20 passengers, and because they hide in unknown locations, it will be more difficult to find them.
