Coast Guard searching for 32-year-old honeymooner who ‘jumped’ overboard 9th floor of Carnival cruise ship


A 32-year-old man on his honeymoon is missing at sea today, after he was seen going overboard on a cruise ship.

Carnival Cruise Line spokeswoman Jennifer De La Cruz said Reco Scott ‘was observed jumping from a [ninth floor] cabin balcony’ at 4:53am on Friday.

At the time, the Carnival Liberty was on its way from Port Canaveral in Florida to Nassau in the Bahamas, and was about 10 miles northwest of the Berry Islands – a 30-square mile chain in the northwest part of the Bahamian Out Islands.

A family member told Fox 5 that the couple got married a year ago, and renewed their vows on Saturday before starting the cruise 

At the time of the incident, the ship was cruising 10 miles off the Berry Islands 

The ship immediately turned around to search for the Decatur, Georgia man, who was on a honeymoon with his wife, Angelijica Scott.

The Coast Guard was also called and sent a helicopter and a clipper to aide in the search.

A family member told Fox 5 that the couple got married a year ago, and renewed their vows last Saturday.

‘We extend our thoughts and prayers to his family and loved ones during this difficult time,’ De La Cruz said.
