The Coast Guard is looking for a woman who fell off a cruise ship near the Bahamas early Wednesday morning.

The 32-year-old fell off the 11th deck of the Carnival Ecstasy around 2:30 a.m., as the ship was about 27 miles southwest of Freeport, Bahamas, according to the Miami Herald.

A spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Line says the woman jumped, the Herald reports. She was last seen wearing a white dress with a pink floral print.

The Coast Guard sent the ship onto Charleston, South Carolina, its next destination, at 9 a.m.

Cost Guard crews stayed behind to continue searching for the woman, according to the Herald, and there is a helicopter, an airplane and ships on the lookout for her.
