A 50-year-old woman was reported overboard by the Carnival Holiday at 12:04 a.m. CDT Tuesday, the Coast Guard said in a statement. The ship was about 75 miles southwest of Pensacola, Fla., at the time.
Carnival Corp. said a passenger reported hearing a splash in the water about 11 p.m. CDT, prompting a cabin-by-cabin search aboard the Holiday. Crew members lowered lifeboats to look for the woman but found nothing
put this in crimes in the news... since we don't know much yet about how she happened to go overboard...

An Alabama man whose wife disappeared off a cruise ship two weeks ago has hired an attorney to help him get a death certificate for the woman.
Sven Vilborg of Bay Minette says the first step is asking a court for the document. Having a death certificate would let relatives of Michelle Vilborg collect on a $5,000 accidental life insurance policy her husband said she had recently taken out.
Authorities believe Michelle Vilborg went overboard from the Carnival Holiday during a cruise out of Mobile on June 15. The Coast Guard never recovered her body from the Gulf of Mexico.
Sven Vilborg says some relatives want to have a memorial service now. He said he doesn't want to do so until the investigation is complete.
