A Georgia man celebrating his honeymoon disappeared after jumping into the ocean from a cruise ship balcony Friday morning — and the vessel has since resumed course.
Reco Scott, a 32-year-old from suburban Atlanta, was on the Carnival cruise line’s Liberty ship northwest of the Berry Islands when he was seen jumping from a ninth deck balcony around 5 a.m., a Carnival spokesman told the Daily News in a statement.
The ship turned around after crew members learned of Scott's plunge and initiated a search mission.
A Coast Guard ship and a helicopter joined the effort in hopes of finding the missing man, but as of early Saturday he was still nowhere to be found.
"The missing guest's family has been notified and our CareTeam is providing support," the Carnival spokesman said. "We extend our thoughts and prayers to his family and loved ones during this difficult time."
Scott was on his honeymoon with wife Angelijica Scott after they renewed their vows last Saturday, relatives told WAGA.
They originally got married in November 2015, according to Angelijica Scott’s social media page.
