A Canadian cruise ship passenger who vanished on New Year's Eve may have fallen, Cayman Island police said Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the unidentified 65-year-old man's wife reported him missing from the Independence of the Seas Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship.

The couple went to bed around 1 a.m. that morning, police said the woman told them, and six hours later she woke to find him gone.

The man is the second Canadian passenger that has gone missing from a Royal Caribbean ship in recent days.

On Saturday, 26-year-old Tien Phuoc Nguyen jumped from the Adventures of the Seas near a tiny Puerto Rican island on the last night of a weeklong Caribbean cruise with his family. The U.S. Coast Guard ended its search for him on Monday.
