Sheriff Mascara reports all are in good health. Of the 19 recovered, there was 1 Brazilian male and 18 Haitian males and females all of whom have been turned over to Border Patrol. Four of the Haitians were small children under the age of 4 including a six month old. One person has not yet been located. She is identified as a Brazilian female named Patricia Boaventura DaSilva 39 years old, blond hair, thin build, and wearing blue jeans and a floral print shirt. She was seen on shore by her husband, the Brazilian male, and then they were separated. Anyone seeing a female matching this description on or near the beach area are asked to call 911.


The initial call came from a concerned citizen. Additional calls and several flag downs by other concerned citizens came in shortly after. Sheriff Mascara would like to thank all of the citizens that provided information.
