The U.S Coast Guard and Cruise Law News is reporting that 74-year-old Jeon Pierre Knorr from France is missing from the Miami-based vessel and is believed to have gone overboard. He was last seen by his wife at around 3:00 AM on Monday when he went out onto his balcony for some fresh air.

At the time the MSC ship was north of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and was sailing towards San Juan for its early morning arrival. The ship departed Port Miami on December 30 on a 7-night Caribbean cruise.

The Coast Guard also mentioned in a news release that “the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of the missing passenger remain unknown.”
