Search canceled for woman missing from cruise ship

MIAMI (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a woman who reportedly fell from a cruise ship balcony off the coast of Cancun.

Passenger Jennifer Seitz was reported missing by her husband from the Norwegian Pearl the day after Christmas.

Authorities say a ship surveillance camera showed someone falling overboard at 8 p.m. the night before.

FBI spokesman Mike Leverock says agents met the ship as it arrived in Miami on Sunday, collected materials and "are still trying to determine if a crime occurred."

Seitz, of Winter Haven, was a former reporter for the Melbourne-based newspaper Florida Today.
