Coast Guard Searches for Cruise Ship Passenger

Tuesday, December 13, 2005
Coast Guard rescue crews have been searching since Saturday afternoon for a 59-year-old-Canadian woman who possibly fell overboard yesterday from the cruise ship Jewel of the Sea off Nassau, Bahamas. A Coast Guard C-130 rescue from Air Station Clearwater, Fla., assisted in the search for the Canadian woman. The crew of an HH-60 Coast Guard helicopter searched after a missing persons report was given to the Coast Guard by the cruise ship crew. Begora was last seen on the vessel on Saturday morning. Begora was reported missing to the ships crew about 1 p.m. by her husband. The crew of the Jewel of the Sea conducted a full ship search for the woman before notifying the Coast Guard. According to RCCL, the Jewel of the Seas was in route to Nassau on Saturday morning. In leaving Nassau later that day, the ship retraced its path sailing into the port. Ship staff also called in two additional cruise ships sailing in the area to assist in the search, but Begora remained unaccounted for. Royal Caribbean continues to fully cooperate with all investigating authorities, and continues to offer assistance to Mr. Begora during this difficult time.
