Louisiana teenager missing after going too far in Bahamas while celebrating graduation

Bahamian and American authorities are on the hunt for a teenager who went too far on Wednesday night while celebrating graduation.

Cameron Robbins, 18, traveled to the Atlantis Paradise resort in Nassau with other Baton Rouge teenagers to mark their high school graduations, Louisiana State University confirmed Thursday.

Robbins graduated from University Lab High School, part of LSU, on Sunday.

The U.S. Coast Guard said Thursday its crews are helping the Royal Bahamas Defense Force search for a missing American who went overboard while on a “sunset cruise.”

The Royal Bahamas Defense Force did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The trip was not a school-sanctioned event, according to LSU. It is not known how many other recent graduates participated in the trip.

Kevin George, principal of University Lab High School, said the school community is “praying for the best possible outcome.” Counselors have been made available on campus for students and faculty.

“I have been in contact with Cameron’s family and at this time authorities are still looking for him in the Bahamas,” George said in a statement Thursday. “At times like these, we need to come together and support each other.”
