MIAMI (AP) - U.S. Coast Guard crews are still looking for a 21-year-old Tennessee woman who fell off a cruise ship into the Atlantic Ocean off Florida.
In a statement to The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/POzcyV ), Royal Caribbean said the Allure of the Seas was headed to Nassau, the Bahamas, when "a guest witnessed another guest going overboard" Sunday night. A surveillance camera also caught the woman's fall.
Two other nearby cruise ships initially joined the search for the woman.
The Coast Guard says the woman is from Bartlett, Tenn. No other information about her was immediately available.
Coast Guard crews were searching Tuesday by air and sea.
The Allure of the Seas skipped its stop in Nassau because of the search. It is due Wednesday in Philipsburg, St. Maarten.
