A statement from the Coast Guard said that Coast Guard Key West watchstanders had received a call at approx 10:00 a.m. from the ship stating the man had been missing and reportedly had gone overboard from Carnival Paradise.

It's still unclear what led Lamonds to go missing. A slew of emergency responders were called to help search for the man who is Greensboro, North Carolina, native. Coast Guard's Air Station Clearwater MH-60 helicopter crew was deployed, as was HC-144 Ocean Sentry Aircraft Crew. 

Carnival Corporation & PLC announced it was working with authorities.
