The United States Coast Guard is searching for a woman who fell overboard from the Carnival Liberty cruise ship 195 miles off the coast of Galveston on Friday.

In a statement to media organizations, Carnival said the 33-year-old female guest was reported missing by traveling companions after which officials conducted a ship wide search and a review of ship's camera footage.

"Unfortunately, it appears the guest may have gone overboard early this morning," the statement said.

The Coast Guard received a call from the master of the Carnival Liberty saying they had video of the woman, identified as Samantha Broberg, falling overboard around 2 a.m. on Friday.
