Carnival Cruise Ship Missing Person jumped overboard, according to authorities. A Coast Guard update on Tuesday night said security footage shows the man jumping off the Carnival Glory.
A missing Louisiana man, Tyler Barnett, has been identified by the agency as the missing man.

According to Barnett’s mother, Elisha Reid, she had previously been informed that no footage of the incident existed.
In a statement to PEOPLE, Carnival said their security team changed the profile of the guest as we searched onboard video on Tuesday, after being notified that he might wear a different shirt.
A family member of the guest traveling with him is receiving assistance from the Coast Guard, they explained.
Earlier this month, family members told CBS affiliate WWL-TV that Barnett’s passenger card was swiped in the ship’s casino at 12:15 a.m., and in his room at around 12:30 a.m. Carnival crew members began searching for Barnett at 7:30 a.m.
A Coast Guard watchstander from the New Orleans sector was alerted to the incident at 12:30 p.m. on Monday.
The search for the missing passenger has so far covered more than 200 miles of water, but adverse weather has hindered progress.
NBC News published a story on Tuesday about Barnett’s grandmother Dirlean Tate Mason, who said she wants answers.
