Original article: The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a passenger who went overboard on a cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday.
On Friday morning, a cruise passenger on Carnival Liberty was reported missing by her travel companions.  After a ship wide search was conducted as well as a review of the cruise ship’s security footage, Carnival Cruise Line said in a statement to KHOU that it appeared that the passenger, 33 year old Samantha Broberg, had gone overboard early Friday morning.

The U.S. Coast Guard was immediately notified and a search is underway in the area where the ship was located when she was last seen. The search is taking place approximately 195 miles from the Texas coast. Carnival’s CareTeam is providing help and assistance to the family and friends of Broberg through this difficult time.

Carnival Liberty departed Galveston, Texas on Thursday afternoon for a four night cruise to the Western Caribbean with a stop in Cozumel, Mexico.   Cruise Fever sends our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Samantha Broberg.  We will update this breaking story as more information becomes available.
