Search for missing cruise passenger

MIAMI, FL (WFLX)- A search is under way in waters near Mexico for a British cruise ship passenger who apparently went overboard.

The Royal Caribbean International cruise line said Friday that another passenger saw the 30-year-old man go over the railing from his stateroom on the Allure of the Seas. That was backed up by footage from an onboard video camera.

The man's name was not immediately released.

The man went overboard as the ship was sailing to Cozumel, Mexico. The Mexican Navy and Coast Guard are assisting in the search.

The Allure of the Seas departed Sunday on a seven-night cruise from Fort Lauderdale.
