NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard is conducting a large-scale search of the Gulf of Mexico for a Louisiana man reported missing from a cruise ship earlier this week. The man has been identified by family as Tyler Barnett, 28, of Houma. Officials say he was last seen on security camera footage aboard the Carnival Glory cruise ship late Sunday. The ship had departed New Orleans earlier that day. The Coast Guard said it’s not clear where he might have gone overboard. The Coast Guard launched two aircrews to comb a roughly 200-mile area following the path of the ship’s voyage to Jamaica.
