I have been out of town but my producer sent me an email today. I’ll go ahead and get right to it.

Associated Press | MIAMI —  The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a cruise ship passenger who reportedly jumped overboard in the Bahamas.

The Coast Guard says crew members aboard Royal Caribbean’s Monarch of the Seas reported Neha Chhikara missing Thursday afternoon as the ship was headed from Nassau to CocoCay.

Royal Caribbean spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez says the guest was reported missing by her husband. Security camera footage showed the 23-year-old woman going overboard from the 11th deck early that morning.

Martinez said Friday that Bahamian government officials reviewed the footage and determined that the woman jumped overboard.

The ship left Port Canaveral, Fla., on Monday for a five-day cruise through the Bahamas. It’s due to return Saturday.

This brings up a good questions…. we have seen a lot of folks jumping over the past year. Do you think that people have started jumping more or that these stories are getting picked up by more news wires?  I am curious of your thoughts…….
