Coast Guard Searches For Missing Norwegian Pearl Passenger

The Coast Guard News reported that the search continued Saturday for a missing passenger from Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Pearl about 15 miles east of Cancun, Mexico. Initially, reports incorrectly identified the passenger as Jennifer Feitz, age 33. Her correct name is Jennifer Seitz, age 36, and her hometown remains unknown at this time.

After Seitz’s husband reported her missing to cruise ship security personnel around 3:50 am Friday, ship personnel conducted a thorough search of the vessel and contacted the Coast Guard for assistance when she was not found on board.

Coordinating the search and rescue mission with the Mexican navy, Coast Guard aircrews from Air Station Miami and Air Station Clearwater (Florida) have searched more than 2,500 square miles for Seitz.
