US Suspends Search For Bartender Who Jumped Ship

Posted: Updated:

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- The U.S. Coast Guard says it has suspended a search for a 30-year-old female bartender who worked aboard a cruise ship and jumped overboard near Puerto Rico.

The Coast Guard said in a statement late Monday that the Filipino woman was an employee with the Celebrity Summit cruise ship. Officials said she jumped late Sunday as the ship passed just northeast of the popular tourist island of Culebra. They did not identify the woman or say whether they had uncovered a possible motive for her action.

The ship operated by Celebrity Cruises had just left Puerto Rico and was headed toward Barbados.
