Cargo ship passenger was found on the deck of the USS Stennis, the ship where she was reported missing, according to U.S. Coast Guard officials.
The Coast Guard says it found the unidentified cargo ship off the coast of Port Canaveral, Florida, about 60 miles southeast of Jacksonville.
It says the passenger vessel, which had been reported missing on May 3, is registered to a private charter company in the Bahamas.
The charter company is owned by the same man who owns the Stennis.
The Stennis’ owner, the captain, was not immediately available for comment.
The Stennis was scheduled to depart Jacksonville for San Diego on Wednesday for a port visit.
A Coast Guard vessel was also searching for the ship, but was not found.
The Coast Guard was notified of the passenger ship and alerted authorities on Monday night.
The vessel was later spotted off the west coast of Florida and was reported by authorities to be carrying passengers and cargo.
A Coast Guard spokesman says the cargo ship was carrying around 5,200 pounds of marijuana.
Officials have not released the cargo’s location or reported any injuries.
The passenger ship has been traveling from the Port of Jacksonville to St. Petersburg, Florida.
The U.K.-based Royal Caribbean said the cargo vessel is a passenger-carrying vessel, but the Royal Caribbean’s statement does not specify which company is the cargo company.
