VIRGIN ISLANDS (CNN) – The United States Coast Guard has joined the search in the Virgin Islands for a Kentucky woman who has been missing since last week.

48-year-old Lucy Schuhmann was reported missing Thursday, September 19th.

The search continued Monday despite the approaching storm, tropical depression Karen, which prompted the closure of Virgin Islands National Park.

Crews are focusing their efforts on the park’s southern shoreline, near where Schuhmann’s rental vehicle was parked.
