U.S. Coast Guard crews searched throughout the weekend for a 46-year-old man who went overboard from Royal Caribbean International's Navigator of the Seas at approximately 10:55 p.m. on March 4 as it sailed off the coast of Key Largo on Friday night. The vessels departed Port Everglades on a Caribbean voyage on February 28.

The man, identified by the Coast Guard as David Mossman of Texas, reportedly fell 100 feet from a stateroom balcony, according to another guest. A review of the ship’s closed-circuit camera footage observed a 46-year-old male guest from the U.S. going overboard from deck 10.

Navigator of the Seas immediately began a search for the passenger to no avail.
