There are reports that an unknown Moldovan woman was with the captain on the bridge of the Costa Concordia when it ran aground.
Newspapers suggest she was not on the passenger list, and perhaps could have more information on what happened.
Meanwhile rescue teams are under pressure to complete their work before a salvage team can begin siphoning off fuel.
