Tourist goes missing from cruise ship

The United States Coast Guard is searching for a Washington state man who has gone missing from a cruise ship in the Caribbean.

Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad says two ships and a helicopter have been dispatched to search for the 42-year-old man, whose name has not been released. The man's wife reported him missing from the Holland America Line cruise ship Eurodam. The ship was travelling from St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands to The Bahamas when the man disappeared early yesterday.

Holland America said in a statement that the ship turned around and has joined the search for the missing passenger. The ship left Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday for a seven-day cruise.
