Update: Coastguard, FBI Called After Woman 'Intentionally' Jumps Off Cruise Ship
Update, November 16, 4:12 p.m. EST -- The Coast Guard has suspended its search, after covering 10,000 square miles looking for the missing Princess passenger.

(November 14, 6:45 a.m. EST) -- The U.S. Coast Guard and the FBI are searching Hawaiian waters after a 54-year-old woman “intentionally” went overboard on a Princess cruise ship.

The woman -- who has not yet been identified but is a U.S. citizen -- went overboard at about 2 p.m. (PST) yesterday (Nov.13) as Grand Princess made its way from San Francisco to Hawaii.

The incident happened as the ship was approximately 650 miles northeast of Hilo, Hawaii. A witness notified crew, and the captain then turned the ship around to search in the area where the passenger was seen going overboard.

A statement released by the line yesterday read: “Today aboard Grand Princess at approximately 1 pm ship's time (2 pm PST) while the ship was en route to Hawaii from San Francisco, a passenger was witnessed intentionally going overboard, and this was confirmed by CCTV.”

Princess Cruises confirmed that the port call at Nawiliwili will be cancelled.

Grand Princess is on day 3 of a 15-day Hawaii cruise sailing roundtrip from San Francisco.
