James Miller, of Charleston, jumped over the railing of Bahamas cruise ship Celebration 27-miles east of Delray Beach, Fla. around 2 a.m., according to Coast Guard officials.

The Coast Guard launched smallboat crewmembers, a cutter and two air crews to search for Miller.

The ship docked in West Palm Beach at 9 a.m. and began its trip to Freeport, Bahamas around 6:30 p.m.

The FBI is investigating the case.
