• Coast Guard suspends search for DeKalb man missing from cruise ship


    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search Saturday evening for a man from DeKalb County who went overboard from the ninth deck of a cruise ship.

    Officials said other passengers saw Reco Scott, 32, jump off a balcony at 5 a.m. Friday as the ship was cruising from Florida to Nassau in the Bahamas.


    The watch standers directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater MH-60 helicopter crew deployed to Great Inaguas, Bahamas, and diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Charles David Jr. to search.

    Crews searched for more than 29 hours, covering 1,064 square miles.

    Carnival Cruise Line said the ship made it to Nassau yesterday and it will start heading back to Port Canaveral on Saturday.

    The cruise ship continued to search in the area, along with two other vessels.

    Family members have set up a GoFundMe for help during the difficult time.
