Carnival Cruise Passengers Missing -- Coast Guard Calls off Search
Update, 3 p.m. EST: Carnival has said that at this point, there is no update on the missing couple. We'll keep you posted.

(January 17, 2009) -- The Coast Guard has suspended its search for an elderly couple who were reported missing from Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival Paradise yesterday.

The 90-year-old man and his 79-year-old wife were last seen onboard the ship on Tuesday, but could not be located when Carnival Paradise arrived back in Long Beach on Friday after its Mexico cruise.

A Carnival spokesperson told Cruise Critic that it does not appear that the couple disembarked in either Catalina Island or Ensenada.

The Coast Guard sent a plane to search the areas where the couple may have gone into the water, and along the track the ship had taken during the cruise -- from Catalina Island to Ensenada and back to Long Beach.

The FBI is continuing to investigate the disappearance, and the Coast Guard has asked for passing ships to keep a look out along the coast.
