The search is underway for a crew member reported overboard from a cruise ship approximately 1,133 miles northeast of Hilo on Tuesday, according to the U.S. Coast Guard.
Coast Guard crews were notified at approximately 12 a.m., regarding a 34-year-old Filipino national who was reported overboard from the Grand Princess.
The crew member was last seen at approximately 10:26 p.m., Monday. An HC-130 Hercules airplane crew from Coast Guard Air Station Barber's Point is currently on scene and the cruise ship has changed course and is searching for the missing passenger.
Princess Cruises spokeswoman Julie Benson says surveillance footage shows the man intentionally jumping overboard.
The cruise ship was en route to the Big Island on a 15-day trip after leaving from San Francisco on Saturday. About 3,000 passengers and 1,000 crewmembers are onboard.
As part of the AMVER program, the container ship Horizon Reliance is assisting in the search along with the Grand Princess's sister ship, Star Princess.
AMVER, sponsored by the Coast Guard, is a unique, computer-based, and voluntary global ship reporting system used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to persons in distress at sea. With AMVER, rescue coordinators can identify participating ships in the area of distress and divert the best-suited ship or ships to respond.
Weather conditions on scene are winds of approximately 20 mph, seas of 7 feet and a water temperature of approximately 70 degrees.
