The Coast Guard is searching for a man who went overboard late Saturday near the end of a week long Caribbean cruise.

A passenger on the Carnival Conquest reported seeing the 42-year-old man fall from a balcony about 11 p.m. The luxury liner was about 110 miles nautical miles southeast of Sabine at the time, Coast Guard officials said.
