Coast Guard Searching for Missing Carnival Cruise Passenger

iStock/Thinkstock(GALVESTON, Texas) -- A Carnival Cruise Line passenger has gone missing about 195 miles off the coast of Galveston, Texas, the U.S. Coast Guard said Friday evening.

The Coast Guard began a search for Samantha Broberg, 33, after receiving a call from the Carnival Liberty indicating they had video of a woman falling overboard around 2 a.m. Friday, the agency said in a statement.

Carnival released a statement earlier Friday saying a “33-year-old female guest on the cruise ship Carnival Liberty was reported missing by traveling companions. A ship-wide search was conducted along with a review of the ship’s camera footage. Unfortunately, it appears the guest may have gone overboard early this morning.”
