FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – The U.S. Coast Guard reports that crews are searching for a 21-year-old Tennessee woman who apparently fell off a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean, about 47 miles east of Fort Lauderdale.

Officials say Coast Guard planes, helicopters and boats were searching an area Monday of about 320 square miles.
