Search for Carnival Cruise passenger who went overboard in ‘intentional act’ called off

The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended the search for a male passenger who went overboard a Carnival cruise ship in what the cruise line deemed “an intentional act.”

Thomas McElhany, 26, was reported missing from the Carnival Victory early Friday morning near the Florida Keys during the ship’s voyage back to PortMiami, according to a statement from the Coast Guard. 

The passenger’s disappearance sparked a manhunt by sea and air that lasted nearly 32 hours covering 2,086 square miles. The Coast Guard announced Saturday evening that they were calling off rescue efforts.
