A woman was reported missing from a cruise ship travelling from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to San Diego after it docked on Tuesday. The 65-year-old woman was reportedly last seen on the Celebrity Millennium Monday night but she did not show up for a customs check on Tuesday. The U.S. Coast Guard was called immediately on Tuesday and a search for the unidentified woman was launched off the coast of Baja California on Wednesday morning. A Coast Guard helicopter and a C-130 aircraft began searching for the woman, whom authorities believe may have gone overboard, from San Diego 150 miles to the south, according to the AP. The FBI is also conducting a search of the cruise ship.
