New Orleans (KPLC) – A passenger was found alive in the water after he was reported missing from the Carnival Valor on Thanksgiving Day.
The man was responsive, according to the Coast Guard. His condition is unknown.
The Carnival Valor crew conducted a search and rescue after a man was reported missing around noon, according to Carnival. He was last seen around 11 p.m. Wednesday by his sister, who said he did not return to his room overnight.
The Valor retraced its route to support the U.S. Coast Guard’s search, but was released and is continuing to Cozumel, according to Carnival.
The round-trip cruise left New Orleans Wednesday. It will sail to Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico before returning on Monday
