Coast Guard Search Continues for Overboard Carnival Crewmember
A Carnival Sensation crewmember, who fell overboard near the east coast of Florida Thursday, still has not been located, but the U.S. Coast Guard is continuing its search.

Phone calls to the Coast Guard Friday were not immediately returned, but several media outlets -- including -- report that two cutters, a response boat and a C-130 Hercules fixed-wing aircraft are currently being used to locate the missing man -- an off-duty entertainment supervisor, who was seen falling overboard by six fellow crewmembers at about 12:50 a.m. on New Year's Day. A statement from Carnival Cruise Lines calls the situation an accident.

Rumors Thursday linked a Disney cruise ship's emergency stop in Ft. Lauderdale to the incident, speculating that, perhaps, the ship had located the missing Carnival crewmember. Disney officials confirmed Friday that the unscheduled stop was unrelated and, rather, was to seek medical attention for a passenger.

We will continue to update our coverage as more details become available.
