JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a 31-year-old man who authorities say jumped from the Carnival Fascination cruise ship.

Officials say a security guard saw the man leap into the water from a 10th floor deck early Tuesday. Officials say he fell about 87-feet into the water.

Crewmembers aboard the cruise ship reported the incident to the Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville command center at 2:09 a.m. Tuesday.

The Coast Guard says has three ships, a motor life boat and a helicopter are currently searching the waters off Ponce De Leon for the man.

The passenger's name has not been released.

No further details were immediately available.
