New York, N.Y., May 30, 2006 – A man who reportedly jumped off a Carnival cruise ship while it was enroute from Tortola to New York late Saturday was still missing last night.

A 12-hour U.S. Coast Guard search failed to find the unnamed man even as the ship docked at Pier 92 in Manhattan Sunday night. Wire reports say the passenger apparently had been drinking and got into an argument with his wife. He apparently then jumped from the sixth level of the ship around 1 a.m. Saturday about 650 miles offshore of Tortola, BVI.

“The company’s thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of the missing guest,” Carnival Cruise Lines said in a statement Sunday. (HBN)
