Mexico Calls Off Search for Cruise Passenger

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican authorities have suspended their
search for a Florida woman who apparently fell from a ship balcony
during a Christmas week cruise.
The U.S. Coast Guard called off its search Monday for Jennifer
Ellis Seitz, a Florida journalist, who was reported missing by her
husband about eight hours after a surveillance camera captured a
person falling overboard on Christmas night.
An FBI spokesman said Tuesday that agents were still
investigating. No one has been charged.
The woman's family said she had "previous emotional issues"
and believes she may have jumped overboard. But they said there
were no outward signs of distress while on the seven-night cruise
from Miami.
