    The search was suspended Monday for a missing Carnival Cruise passenger
    who leaped off the ship near the Florida coast, the Coast Guard announced.

    Jaylen Hill, 30, was caught on camera jumping off the side of the Carnival Elation on Sunday as it was heading toward its final stop in Jacksonville.

    The Coast Guard dispatched the 87-foot cutter Tarpon from St. Petersburg,
    a Hercules aircraft based out of Clearwater, and a Miami-based Ocean
    Sentry aircraft to search for Hill.

    The crews covered more than 1,347 square miles — an area nearly the size
    of Long Island — while looking for Hill, but by Monday night, their
    efforts yielded no results and the search was called off “pending any
    further developments,” the Coast Guard said.

    “We offer our deepest condolences to the Hill family,” Petty Officer Eric Rodriguez said in a statement.

    “Our crews take our life-saving mission very seriously. Any time we can’t
    bring a loved one home to their family is a pain we all feel.”

    Hill was on the cruise with a “travel companion” when he jumped overboard,
    the cruise line has said.
