SAN DIEGO – Coast Guard crews from San Diego and Sacramento are searching for a woman who was reported missing from a cruise ship that docked in San Diego Tuesday morning.

The Coast Guard received the report of the missing woman at 1:15 p.m., and launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Coast Guard Sector San Diego and a C-130 Hercules plane from Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento to search for the missing person.
