Coast Guard Suspends Search for Missing Carnival Cruise Passenger
On Wednesday, June 19, the Coast Guard officially called off the search for Michelle Vilborg. The 50-year-old Bay Minette, Alabama, resident was declared missing from Carnival Holiday on Monday.

According to the Coast Guard's Web site, two Coast Guard cutters, a Jayhawk helicopter, a Falcon jet and an Ocean Sentry rescue plane searched 3,654 square miles over the course of 70 hours, to find the woman who went overboard approximately 75 miles southwest of Pensacola, FL. The search was unsuccessful and was called off yesterday.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Vilborg's family.
