By ,   September 11, 2016 ,   Accidents

NCL crew member has gone overboard on Thursday, September 8, from Norwegian Pearl during a voyage returning from Alaska. 

Norwegian Pearl is on an 8-day "Glacier Bay cruise" which started September 4, and ends September 11, in Seattle.  

The 25-year-old woman was employed for 2 contracts for NCL. 

Juneau Empire reported that a passenger went overboard from Norwegian Pearl in Lynn Canal, according to Alaska State Trooper spokesman. However, several Norwegian Cruise Line crew members indicated that the woman was a crew member. 

The woman was reported missing from the ship on Thursday at 5:30 a.m. when she was noticed to be absent from her cabin. NCL security personnel later looked at CCTV which revealed she had gone overboard while Norwegian Pearl was under-way. 

The Sitka Coast Guard launched a helicopter and the Juneau station launched 45-foot Coast Guard Cutter Liberty.  The searches were reportedly suspended on September 9.
