(CNN) — One person is missing after high winds in Mobile, Alabama, caused the disabled cruise ship Carnival Triumph to break loose from its dock.

There were conflicting reports as to where the missing man was working.

An official with the Mobile fire department said the missing man and another person were in a guard shack that was blown into the water. One man has been recovered from the water.

However, the Coast Guard saed the missing person was involved in repair work on the Triumph.

The Triumph has been at the BAE Shipyard in the Port of Mobile since an engine fire in February left the cruise ship crippled and adrift in the Gulf of Mexico with more than 4,200 people aboard. For four days, tugboats guided the disabled ship into the port as passengers complained about miserable conditions on board.
