On Wednesday night, the United States Coast Guard suspended the search for an MSC Seascape cruise ship crew member believed to have fallen overboard in the Atlantic Ocean north of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.

The thirty-year-old Indian national is still missing.

The Coast Guard said it learned of the incident at about 8:57 pm Tuesday as the cruise ship was en route from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

The man was reportedly observed going overboard, approximately 80 feet from the bow of the cruise ship, from a height of roughly 32 feet above the water.

But they failed to locate the missing crew member.
