A US Navy sailor went missing from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz in the North Arabian Sea on Sunday, CNN and ABC News report. "The sailor was not located upon a search on board which resulted in a man overboard being called and the activation of the search and rescue," Cmdr. Rebecca Rebarich, a 5th Fleet rep, tells ABC. The sailor has not been named. The guided-missile cruiser USS Princeton has joined in the search and rescue operation. The Nimitz deployed to the Pacific and the Middle East in late April.
