Search canceled for woman missing from cruise ship


MIAMI The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a Florida woman who reportedly fell from a cruise ship balcony off the coast of Mexico.

Passenger Jennifer Seitz was reported missing by her husband from the Norwegian Pearl the day after Christmas.

Authorities say a ship surveillance camera showed someone falling overboard at 8 p.m. Christmas night off the coast of Cancun.

The Coast Guard and Mexican navy searched for the woman over the weekend before calling it off Monday afternoon.

FBI spokesman Mike Leverock says agents met the ship as it arrived in Miami on Sunday, collected materials and are still trying to determine if a crime occurred.
