MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Carnival Cruise Line says a passenger is missing on a cruise ship from Alabama.

Carnival tells news outlets in a statement that the male passenger was reported missing as the Carnival Fantasy was bound for Progreso, Mexico.

The ship is on a five-day cruise and left Mobile on Saturday. It left Progreso at the scheduled time Monday afternoon with no indication that the person was found.

The Fantasy was on its way to Cozumel, Mexico, Monday night and was set to dock there Tuesday.
