FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -

(WMC-TV) – A 21-year-old Bartlett woman is still missing after reportedly falling overboard a cruise ship Sunday night. 

The woman, who has yet to be identified, was traveling aboard Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas ship 47 miles east of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

According to a statement from the cruise line, another passenger saw the woman go overboard.   They were also able to locate the fall on the ship's closed circuit cameras. 

After a thorough search of the vessel and multiple announcements over the ship's P.A. system, the ship's captain contacted the U.S. Coast Guard.

The coast guard is now searching about 320 square miles of water using every resource available to them.

The cruise ship was headed to Nassau.
