The search for a 37-year-old man who fell overboard from a Carnival cruise ship on which he worked continued Friday evening, the Coast Guard said.

The ship was traveling Thursday from Cozumel, Mexico, to its home port of Miami on a four-day itinerary when the man fell from the ship.

“The ship’s command immediately returned to the location where the crew member was last seen and initiated search and rescue activities, which are ongoing,” a Carnival spokesperson told Fox News.
