KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) -- Rescuers are scouring waters for a South Carolina man who apparently jumped off a cruise ship sailing between the Bahamas and South Florida.

For a second day, U.S. Coast Guard crews on Monday were searching waters for 30-year-old James Miller. The Coast Guard says the Charleston man reportedly jumped off the Bahamas Celebration ship early Sunday.

The cruise ship was sailing about 27 miles (43 kilometers) east of Florida's Delray Beach when he was reported missing.

The crew of the vessel owned by Celebration Cruise Line turned the liner around to search for Miller once he was reported missing at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

A Coast Guard cutter, two air crews and various small boats have been looking for the missing man. The FBI is also investigating his disappearance.
