Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The United States Coast Guard is searching for a 50-year-old Carnival Cruise Paradise passenger who reportedly went overboard approximately 85 miles west of Fort Myers, Fla.

The man, identified as Brian Lamonds of Greensboro, NC, was reported missing Tuesday morning as the ship was sailing from Tampa to Key West.

The Coast Guard was notified of the missing guest and are currently conducting a search, Carnival Cruise said in a statement to Fox News.

“On Tuesday morning, a male guest went overboard as the ship was sailing from Tampa to Key West, Florida. The Coast Guard was notified and is currently conducting a search for the guest. We are cooperating fully with all authorities.  Our Care Team is providing support and assistance to the guest’s family,” the statement read.

According to a press release, the Coast Guard Key West watch was notified of the missing passenger around 10 am and sent out a Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew, an Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft crew and the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Isaac Mayo to aid in the search.

The Carnival Paradise departed Tampa on Monday for a six-day cruise.

Just starting out on the cruise and that is very hard to understand what happened. As always I believe we need more details to some of these stories. Most of them seem related to alcohol but I am not sure about this one. It was quite early when they noticed he was missing.

Seems like it is usually alcohol related... or suicide.  It would be pretty hard to just fall over.   Definitely need more details.  It could help others.  So sad.
