Scott and his wife, Angelijica, were on holiday after renewing their wedding vows.

Officials are searching for a husband after he reportedly "jumped" from the ninth deck of a cruise ship while on holiday with his wife.

According to a Carnival Cruise Line spokesman, Reco Scott (32) went overboard in the early hours of Friday morning at around 4.53 am.

They'd been married for a year.

The cruiser was travelling from Port Canaveral in Florida in the US and was approximately 16 km northwest of the Berry Islands in the Caribbean Sea.

After his alleged jump, a helicopter and boat were sent out in search of Scott, who’s from Decatur in Georgia. But by Saturday there was still no trace of him.

It's unknown what caused him to jump.
