On Friday May 13, 33-year-old Samantha Broberg fell overboard the Carnival Liberty while sailing in the Gulf of Mexico. Cruise Hive previously reported on this terrible news but now new details are known about how she fell and the U.S. Coast Guard has decided to end the search.

On Sunday at 8:14PM the Coast Guard ended the search for the missing woman around 200 miles southeast of Galveston, Texas. The Coast Guard had been searching the area for 20 hours and covered more than 4,300 square miles.

Broberg fell overboard the 110,000 gross ton vessel at around 2AM. CCTV footage showed the woman sitting on a railing on deck 10, she then fell backwards into the water. Nobody onboard including the people she was cruising with knew she was missing until hours later. Once known the crew did an immediate search on the entire ship. The USCG was contacted by the ship that a passenger had gone missing at around 5PM. A photo of Broberg was also put up around the vessel asking people to call guest services if they knew anything.

The Carnival Liberty was sailing a 4-day cruise to Cozumel, Mexico which end at its home port of Galveston today. You thoughts are with Samantha Brobergs family and loved one during this very difficult time.
