GREENWICH - New information may have been uncovered in the 2005 disappearance of Greenwich newlywed George Smith.

Smith disappeared from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship while on his honeymoon. Investigators believe he fell off a balcony.

Saturday's episode of "48 Hours" on CBS revealed new evidence surrounding the three Russian men who were the last to see Smith alive.

One of those men, who is in prison on drug charges, says Smith's death was not an accident.

The Smith family says they found out this morning that the New York branch of the FBI is taking over the case.
