Searches fail to locate missing passenger on cruise ship

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – Searches have failed to turn up a man who went missing Sunday aboard a cruise ship traveling to the western Caribbean from Mobile, Alabama.

A statement from the Miami-based Carnival Cruise Line says crew members aboard the Carnival Fantasy have conducted shipwide searches and made onboard announcements. The Mexican Navy helped with a canine search while the ship was in the port of Progreso.

But news outlets report the company says it’s still trying to locate a passenger it identifies as a 22-year-old man who was last seen when he ran out of his cabin.

A statement says the man has special needs and was traveling with an organized group of nine people with three chaperones.

The Fantasy left Mobile on Saturday. It has a passenger capacity of 2,675 people.
