His wife told investigators that the incident happened at around 3 a.m. local time on Monday when Knorr went out to the couple's room balcony to get some fresh air, but the exact circumstances of the fall remain unknown.

"MSC Divina officials notified the Coast Guard that they have searched the entire cruise ship and made callouts through the public announcement system with negative results," the Coast Guard said in a statement.

The incident happened when the cruise ship was in waters north of Aguadilla in Puerto Rico. Two helicopters, a plane and the Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley have been launched to assist in the search.
