Coast Guard crews continued to search Sunday night for a 30-year-old Charleston man who reportedly jumped over the railing of a cruise ship early Sunday morning off the coast of Florida.
The Bahamas Celebration, part of the Celebration Cruise Line, notified Coast Guard crews in Miami at around 2 a.m. Sunday of the incident, according to a news release.
The man, identified as James Miller, of Charleston, reportedly went overboard early Sunday about 27 miles east of Delray Beach, Fla., the news release said. Crews immediately responded with both aircraft and Coast Guard ships searching the area.
Coast Guard officials said Sunday night that Miller had not been located and that the search was ongoing.
The Bahamas Celebration is currently docked at Port Everglades, Fla.
The incident is under investigation by the FBI.
