The U.S. Coast Guard resumed the search for an unidentified missing cruise ship passenger off the coast of Baja, California on Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

The 65-year old woman reportedly disappeared somewhere between the coast of Baja and San Diego while traveling on the Celebrity Millennium from Fort Lauderdale to Vancouver.

The woman was reported missing when she failed to show for a customs check when the boat docked in San Diego.

She had been seen, however, boarding the boat in Cabo San Lucas, as well as aboard in transit to San Diego.

A patrol boat is now searching for the woman, as are a Coast Guard helicopter and C-130 air craft, both of which are monitoring the 150-mile stretch from San Diego south along the Baja coast towards Bahia de San Quintin.

Earlier this spring, a Disney Wonder cruise member went missing along the Mexican Riviera.

The woman jumped, was confirmed by the ships cameras. If you check all those who go off cruise ships, the large majority are jumpers or doing something stupid while under the influence of something. Why do you think they have so many cameras on the ships.

Serial killer. FBI should check the boat manifests for every single cruise where someone has gone missing. Cross-check to see if there is anyone who has been on more than one, or if someone is using multiple aliases (via photo recognition of passport copies).
