A spokeswoman for Holland America Line says a passenger missing from its cruise ship Zaandam in Alaska appears to be a case of suicide.

Spokeswoman Sally Andrews says no evidence of foul play has been found.

The Zaandam remains on schedule. It's in Sitka on Tuesday and due to return to Seattle on Friday after a week-long cruise.

The woman believed to have fallen overboard is 45-year-old Amber Malkuch of Washington state.

She was reported missing by a traveling companion Monday morning when the Zaandam was in Glacier Bay National Park, about 75 miles northwest of Juneau. She was last seen hours earlier after she ordered room service, when the vessel was near Alaska's Douglas Island.

A woman's body was found yesterday afternoon by a search helicopter.
