SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - The Coast Guard has searched for a second day for a Washington state man missing from his Caribbean cruise but found no sign of him.
Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad tells The Associated Press that two ships and a plane based in Florida were searching the ocean northwest of Puerto Rico on Friday. He said it remained an active search effort.
The 42-year-old man was identified as Jason Rappe of Olympia, Washington, who had been on board the Holland America Line cruise ship Eurodam. The ship was traveling from St. Thomas to the Bahamas when he was reported missing by his wife on Thursday. The ship turned around to join the search but a Holland America spokeswoman says the Eurodam has since resumed its journey.
