Cruise Norwegian launched a search and rescue mission Saturday after receiving a report that an adult went overboard while the cruise ship was sailing from Cannes, France to the Spanish island Mallorca, NBC News reported.
Local authorities are assisting with the search for the passenger, whose name and nationality have not been released.
Passenger Rebekah Sanderlin told weather.com that the ship’s captain asked passengers to stand at the deck railings and help look for the adult female in the water.
“At about 8:30 a.m., the captain came on the speaker and said the ship was turning around to go back to look for a passenger who he said they had ‘good evidence’ had gone overboard,” Sanderlin told the website. “After about two hours of sailing, he came on the speaker again and said that we were in the area where she went overboard.”
