Search Ends for Missing Cruise Passenger

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — The Coast Guard has called off its search for a woman believed to have gone overboard on a Bahamas cruise.

Search and rescue crews trolled the waters between Freeport, Bahamas, and the Port of Palm Beach in Florida for about 84 hours, covering an area of nearly 7,300 square miles. They also did air searches to try and spot the woman from above.

They ended their search Thursday night.

The boyfriend of the 47-year-old Canadian woman says he last saw her early Wednesday as the Bahamas Celebration ship was returning to Florida. He alerted the ship’s crew, prompting the search.

Her identity has not yet been released.
