A woman who is believed to have fallen overboard from a cruise ship off Florida Sunday night is still missing, and U.S. Coast Guard crews are combing the Atlantic for her, officials told NBC News Tuesday.
The 21-year-old woman, who is from Bartlett, Tenn., was on a Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas ship 47 miles east of Fort Lauderdale when she reportedly fell into the ocean.
Crew members searched the cruise ship Sunday night for the woman; when they couldn't find her, the captain alerted search-and-rescue officials at the Coast Guard in Miami.
Florida's Sun Sentinel reported a fellow Allure of the Seas passenger saw the woman go overboard around 9:25 p.m. Sunday; the ship's camera footage later confirmed she had gone into the water, Royal Caribbean told the paper.
