HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — The Coast Guard said it was searching for any other possible bodies after four people were found dead Sunday in waters off the South Florida coast.
Two males were found floating in the water around 10 a.m. Sunday off Hollywood, authorities said. The Coast Guard responded and later found another male and a female.
Petty Officer Mark Barney said, “our main concern is to make sure there’s no one else out there in distress that might need help.”
Barney said a Coast Guard plane reported what appeared to be as many as three other bodies in the vicinity of the victims, but crews were still searching the water to see whether they actually were bodies or just debris.
No vessel belonging to the victims has been located.
The Coast Guard said the dead have not been identified and it’s not clear if they may have been migrants.
