(KEY LARGO, Fla.) — Coast Guard search crews have covered 1,676 square nautical miles as they continued looking for a man who fell overboard from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship off the coast of Key Largo, Florida.
David Mossman, 46, of Texas, fell overboard the Navigator of the Seas late Friday, said officials with the Coast Guard and Royal Caribbean. The Coast Guard assumed control of the search early Saturday, the cruise line said.
“Royal Caribbean’s Care Team is providing support to the guest’s family and our thoughts and prayers are with them,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement.
Navigator of the Seas then resumed its journey back to Port Everglades, Florida, where it arrived Saturday morning. The ship had departed Port Everglades for the cruise on Feb. 28, the cruise line said.
