On Saturday, search and rescue efforts for a 69-year-old passenger (who went overboard a cruise ship off the coast of Alaska) have been suspended.
Last week, Brian Lamonds, a 50-year-old cruise passenger from Greensboro, NC, went missing from the Carnival Paradise. The Coast Guard spent 55 hours searching 3,059 square miles before making the difficult decision to call off the search.
This week, an elderly male passenger, who was reportedly in his eighties, went missing from the Sun Princess as it was 100 nautical miles southeast of Singapore. After a thorough investigation of the area, the search was called off.
