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

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.
