The social work student, from Dundee, is presumed dead after he vanished on the MSC Euribia.

He was on a seven-day trip for his mum’s birthday but was last seen on deck by his sister on March 16.

But it is thought that he fell overboard into the North Sea as it sailed from Southampton to Amsterdam, Netherlands.

His devastated wife Sophia Mcphee, 20, has now revealed that in the last text message he sent her, Liam was complaining of feeling seasick.

Sophia did not go on the trip and last saw her husband on Thursday, March 14, when he travelled from their home in Dundee to Glasgow to meet up with his family.

The group then boarded the cruise ship in Southampton the following day.

But she later received a message from his sister to say there had been an accident on board.

Sophia told she has been left in the dark since the tragedy.

She told the Daily Record: “I feel so lost. He’s just…gone.

“I’m never going to see him again. I’m devastated.


“I have so many questions, and I’m not getting any answers to what’s happened.”

Sophia continued: “I was first contacted by his sister on Sunday.

“She said there had been an accident and Liam ‘wasn’t coming back’.

“She then said she had seen CCTV and he’d gone overboard.

“I’ve not had any contact from anyone since.”

MSC have confirmed a passenger disappeared on the cruise and officers from Hampshire Constabulary boarded the vessel when it arrived back in the UK to investigate.

I feel so lost. He’s just…gone. I’m never going to see him again. I’m devastated.

A spokesperson from MSC Cruises said: “A passenger on board MSC Euribia went overboard on 16 March as the ship was sailing to Hamburg. This was reported to the authorities. 

“The police in Southampton boarded the vessel today and investigated on behalf of the coroner. 

“We are deeply saddened by this news and our thoughts are with the family at this very difficult time. 

“Out of respect for the family’s privacy, we will refrain from disclosing any additional information.”

“The man’s family are aware and police are investigating this on behalf of the coroner.”

The Euribia was going to Hamburg, FranceBelgium, and Amsterdam before heading back to Southampton on March 22.
