USCG searches for man who reportedly jumped from Bahamas Celebration

US Coast Guard crews have been searching for a man who reportedly jumped over the railing of Bahamas Celebration early Sunday morning.

James Miller, 30, of Charleston, S.C., went overboard 27 miles east of Delray Beach, Fla., according to USCG.

After receiving notice from the Celebration Cruise Line ship at approximately 2 a.m. Sunday, the Coast Guard Seventh District in Miami issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast and dispatched a boat crew from Station Lake Worth Inlet, Fla. An 87-foot USCG cutter and two air crews from Coast Guard Air Station Miami are assisting in the search.

Bahamas Celebration docked at West Palm Beach, Fla. at 9 a.m. Sunday and sailed for Freeport, Bahamas, at approximately 6:30 p.m.

USCG said the incident is being investigated by the FBI.
