The U.S. Coast Guard sent out an emergency response team Wednesday to scour the waters off Cuba for a crew member who fell off the Celebrity Cruise Ship Constellation.

A spokesman for the Coast Guard said rescuers believe the ship sailed out of Miami, the Associated Press reported.

Officials have sent out a cutter and a C130, according to AP. The search team is focusing on the Yucatan Channel, located about 20 miles from the western coast of Cuba.

The identity of the crew member, or any details of his or her fall, is not yet known.
