An 18-year-old Louisiana student was celebrating his recent high school graduation on a sunset cruise in the Bahamas on Wednesday when he allegedly leapt overboard on a dare, sparking a massive search.

Cameron Robbins, a recent graduate of University Laboratory School in Baton Rouge, was on a trip to the Bahamas with students from several local high schools, staying at the Atlantis Paradise Island resort in Nassau, according to WAFB.

Robbins and his buddies went on a sunset party boat on Wednesday evening, only four hours after they arrived.

Witnesses said the 18-year-old, who was evidently acting on a dare, jumped from the boat into the water near Athol Island about 9:40 p.m.

Robbins was last seen swimming in the murky seas a few feet from the boat before disappearing.

The boat, which was constructed to seem like a pirate ship, remained in the region for many hours as crew members searched for the adolescent.

The Royal Bahamas Defence Force, with assistance from the US Coast Guard Southeast, has been looking for the missing adolescent from the air, but has so far been unsuccessful.

Robbins attended University Lab School for all 13 years of his education and was a pitcher for the school’s baseball team, according to Director Kevin George.

His younger sister is a junior at the school.

“He’s an athlete, great kid, great smile, great head of hair,” George told the station WBRZ.

“Just one of the kids you’re so proud of when they cross the stage.”

The principal released a statement on behalf of the school, saying that the University Lab School community was praying for Robbins’ safe return.

“I have been in touch with Cameron’s family and at this time, authorities are still searching for him in the Bahamas,” George wrote.

“In times like these, we must come together and support each other. Words fall short of expressing the worry our entire school community is feeling.”
