The US Coast Guard was searching for a man who was reported missing on a cruise ship near Juneau late Monday and is believed to have fallen overboard.
A Holland America Line statement Tuesday said the man was a crew member on the ship Koningsdam and was reported missing shortly after the ship left Juneau.
“A review of video footage from closed-circuit television determined that the man probably fell overboard intentionally,” the statement said.
