MIAMI (AP) — The Coast Guard has ended the search for a crewmember from a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean off Florida's coast.

According to the Royal Caribbean cruise line, co-workers saw the 26-year-old crewmember go overboard from the Majesty of the Seas early Thursday. The ship was about 40 miles (65 kilometers) east of Florida's Hillsboro Inlet and sailing to Port Everglades at the end of a six-day cruise to the Bahamas.
