USCG searches for overboard Carnival Liberty passenger
US Coast Guard air crews continued searching through the day and into the evening Saturday, after beginning a search Friday for a woman who went overboard from Carnival Liberty about 200 miles southeast of Galveston.

Samantha Broberg, 33, was reported missing to the ship's personnel Friday around noon, and a search was conducted on board. Video showed her going overboard from the 10th deck at around 2 a.m. The crew contacted the Coast Guard at about 5 p.m.

Coast Guard HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane crews from Aviation Training Center Mobile, Alabama, and Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas, have alternated sorties since beginning the search, saturating a 22 by 63 nautical mile area with a combined search area total of more than 3,000 square miles.

The Ocean Sentry air crews stopped searching for the night and planned to resume at first light Sunday.
