Authorities continue to search for 10 people who went missing after a boat from Cuba capsized Wednesday.
Local10.com reports that the U.S. Coast Guard launched a search for survivors of the vessel, which left from Puerto de Mariel, Cuba with 20 people aboard. Authorities found and rescued eight of the boaters, while two others were found and pronounced dead.
Relatives of the remaining 10 boaters are hoping that they may still be found alive. A friend of the family of one of the missing boaters, named Michael Martinez, said that the missing boater’s “mother is in Cuba frantic because while she knows there are some people who have been rescued, she doesn’t know if her son was one of them.”
The Coast Guard has not indicated how long it will continue to search for survivors.
