A crewmember from the cruise ship MSC Seaside went overboard off US Virgin Islands on May 16, according to the US Coast Guard.

Relevant authorities launched a search operation for the crewmember, who went missing some 8 nautical miles southeast of St. Thomas.

The crewman, identified as the 37-year-old Michael M. Majaba, of the Philippines, reportedly went overboard from the seventh deck of the Maltese-flagged cruise ship at 1 a.m. on Wednesday.

The cruise ship crew launched a search and contacted watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector San Juan Command Center at 4 a.m. alerting them of the situation.

MSC Seaside was transiting from the Caribbean Island of St. Maarten to San Juan, Puerto Rico when the incident took place.
