The body of a man that washed up on a Florida beach in the U.S. has been identified as that of a missing cruise ship worker.

The man, 27-year-old Cliford B. Minej, was reported missing from Holland America Line’s Ryndam several days ago as it was returning to port in Tampa, Florida.

Authorities said Minej's last known residence was in Thane, India.

He is believed to have jumped or fell from the ship. The Pinellas County Medical Examiner's Office has ruled the death accidental.
