The US Coast Guard reports that crews are searching for a 21-year-old Tennessee woman who apparently fell off a cruise ship in the Atlantic Ocean, about 47 miles east of Fort Lauderdale.

The Coast Guard says the woman, whose name wasn't immediately released, was reported missing Sunday night from the Royal Caribbean vessel Allure of the Seas.

Officials say Coast Guard planes, helicopters and boats were searching an area Monday of about 320 square miles.
