Search ends for Olympia man missing from Caribbean cruise

The Associated Press

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The U.S. Coast Guard has called off a search for a Olympia man believed to have gone overboard while on a Caribbean cruise.

Spokesman Ricardo Castrodad said Saturday that the search was suspended late Friday.

The man was identified as 42-year-old Jason Gregory Rappe of Olympia, Washington. His wife reported him missing Thursday from the Holland America cruise ship Eurodam. Rappe’s baseball cap was found on one of the decks.

Rappe was reported missing as the ship traveled from St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to the Bahamas.

The ship had turned around to help search for Rappe but later resumed its voyage. It is expected to arrive in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Saturday.
