    Lucy Schuhmann (48) missing from St. John, USVI since 9/19/19

    A search for a Kentucky woman missing in the U.S. Virgin Islands was temporarily halted Tuesday due to Tropical Storm Karen.

    Lucy Schuhmann, 48, a Louisville resident, was reported missing Thursday, after her bags were found at an Airbnb in Coral Bay on St. John, officials said.

    Her rental car was found at a parking area in the Virgin Islands National Park, officials said. Rescuers have been concentrating their search on the southern shoreline of the park, near where Schuhmann's car was found.

    Divers and snorkelers have investigated the waters off St. John, and a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter has also searched the area, according to a statement Tuesday from the Virgin Islands National Park.


    In light of a tropical storm warning Tuesday, the search was temporarily suspended "until the storm passes and conditions allow the effort to safely continue," the statement said.

    The brunt of Karen is expected to hit Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands on Tuesday afternoon with rainfall of 2 to 4 inches, and some isolated spots getting 8 inches, according to the National Hurricane Center.

    Rescuers in the U.S. Virgin Islands on Thursday expanded their search for a missing American medical school graduate whose backpack was found on a cliff, officials said.

    Even though searchers are taking a fresh look for Lucy Schuhmann, 48, on remote cliffs of Ram Head, Virgin Islands National Park spokesman Thomas Kelley said rescuers do not believe she fell.

    Most of the area below Ram Head is jagged rocks, not water, so if anyone had fallen off, rescuers probably would have found a body by now.

    "There’s no evidence of it and we don't have any reasons to think that" Schuhmann fell, Kelley told NBC News. "You have to understand that there is no water under most of that area."

    A backpack with Schuhmann's ID was found on top of Ram Head.
