$30,000 in cash: missing pirates Richard Phillips
by Staff


The U.S. Navy is investigating the disappearance of $30,000 in cash during the hijacking of the U.S.-flagged ship Maersk Alabama off the coast of Somalia and the Navy SEALs' rescue of its captain, Richard Phillips, in April.

Navy officials tell NBC News that Phillips reportedly took the cash from the ship's safe and handed it over to the pirates who then took the money along with Captain Phillips aboard one of the ship's lifeboats in an effort to escape.

But after one of the pirates was taken into custody and Navy SEALs shot and killed the three other pirates holding Phillips hostage aboard the lifeboat, the money was apparently nowhere to be found.
