ORLANDO, Fla. (Tribune News Service) — The Coast Guard is on the search for a man who reportedly went overboard from the Carnival Victory cruise ship off the Florida Keys.

A call from the cruise ship said a 26-year-old passenger went overboard 35 miles south of Islamorada.

The twitter account of journalist Kimberly Wyatt, reportedly on board, posted an image of the missing man, saying the cruise line was asking passengers to report if they had seen him and that security went cabin to cabin searching for him. A post later stated that security cameras on board showed the man going overboard.

The ship was returning to Miami from a four-night cruise that stopped in Key West and Cozumel.

Active in the search are the Coast Guard's Air Station Miami MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry and Coast Guard Cutter Charles David, Jr. (WPC-1107).
