Cruise ship searches for missing crew member in Caribbean

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A search is underway near the U.S. Virgin Islands for a crew member on a cruise ship who apparently went overboard in rough seas.

Geneva-based MSC Cruises says the crew member on the MSC Seaside was reported missing before dawn Wednesday while the ship was en route to Puerto Rico from St. Maarten. The ship turned around to search for the crew member with the assistance of the U.S. Coast Guard and other ships in the area.

The effort has been hampered by large swells and winds of more than 30 mph.

The missing man's name and nationality have not been released but the company says in a statement that his family has been notified.
