UPDATE: FBI: Tape Indicates When Missing Man Went Overboard

After the FBI and the Coast Guard reviewed surveillance video from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, the search for a missing man was called off after it was determined that he went overboard early Monday morning.

Royal Caribbean released a statement saying that 21-year-old Daniel DiPiero, of Canfield, Ohio, had been drinking heavily, some of the alcohol having been brought on the ship in violation of Royal Caribbean policy.

“Royal Caribbean learned the following from the FBI’s investigation:

>The young man was served five drinks over a four-hour period — from 8 p.m. to midnight Sunday. During this time, the young man also ate dinner with his six companions, at which point the seven guests shared 1.5 bottles of wine.

>The missing man and his three roommates brought three bottles of liquor onboard the ship, which they concealed in their luggage in violation of Royal Caribbean policy. The young men concealed some the liquor in two large mouthwash bottles. One bottle contained Crown Royal, the other, a combination of two liquors — one named Hypnotic and the other Hennessy cognac. The young men also brought a bottle of Bacardi rum onto the ship in their luggage.

>The four young men consumed the alcohol Sunday afternoon and that evening in both their stateroom and that of their guardian.

>The four videotaped themselves as they drank the alcohol.

>The FBI and Coast Guard thoroughly reviewed the digital video recording captured by the ship’s security systems, which recorded the young man alone on an outside portion of deck 4 on the starboard side of the ship between 12:12 a.m. and 2:16 a.m. Monday. The FBI and Coast Guard indicated to family members that the young man went overboard at 2:16 a.m. Monday and that he was alone at the time.
