US Coast Guard searching for man, 35, who fell overboard a Carnival cruise ship

Cruise ships regularly lose passengers, even crew members, and continue on their trip unless ordered to stop by the local coast guard. But often the coast guard won't be notified until hours after the person has been reported missing. Think about it this way: cruise ships are full of thousands of people, many of whom are intoxicated, and no police are anywhere to be found. While security exists, they answer to the cruise ship company, which is focused on maximizing profits. The US Coast Guard is searching for a 35-year-old man named Ronnie Lee Peale Jr. who went overboard a Carnival Magic cruise ship early May 29. A Carnival spokesperson said that "an initial review of closed circuit security footage confirms that he leaned over the railing of his stateroom balcony and dropped into the water at approximately 4:10 am early Monday morning," according to CBS affiliate WTKR. The ship was reportedly around 186 miles (300 km) east of Jacksonville, Florida, at the time, traveling from Virginia to the Bahamas. "It just hurts too much to even type, let alone talk about it," Peale's fiancée Jennilyn Michelle Blosser told WTKR. "This was his first cruise." Have a look at some of the stories behind how people went missing on cruise ships and were never to be found again.
