The FBI has jumped into the probe into a missing Italian chef who disappeared aboard a cruise ship sailing from Aruba to Colombia.

The Associated Press reported that chef Angelo Faliva was last seen Nov. 26 aboard the Princess Cruise’s Coral Princess. Authorities are looking into the possibility he went overboard.

AP reported that the FBI joined the investigation at the request of the Italian Consulate in Los Angeles. The ship docked at the Port of Los Angeles on Monday.
