The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for a missing Carnival Victory crewmember on July 7.

The 37-year-old man fell overboard on July 4 some 30 miles northwest of Cuba while the vessel was sailing back to Miami from Cozumel.

After searching around 2,600 square nautical miles for over 45 hours, officials were unable to locate the crewmember.

Involved with the search were the Coast Guard Cutters Charles Sexton (WPC-1108) and William Trump (WPC-1111) with Coast Guard Air Station Miami HC-144 Ocean Sentry airplane aircrews. The Cuban Border Guard also conducted searches.

“We’ve been in contact with the crewmember’s family throughout our search efforts and know this is a very difficult time for them,” said Michael Mullen, search and rescue mission coordinator at Coast Guard 7th District.
