Another abandoned vessel found off Isla Mujeres coast

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Police are looking into the discovery of another small vessel off the coast of Isla Mujeres. The vessel was noticed abandoned on a beach area Wednesday morning.

According to Isla Mujeres police, an area resident made the call to police at 11:50 a.m., reporting the sighting of the vessel at Media Luna. Police went to check on the situation, but did not have anything to go on since the boat was without occupants and no one knows exactly when it arrived or where it came from.

The General Directorate of Public Safety was at the boat location where they proceeded to gather what information they could.

There has been several vessels found, a majority of which are abandoned, along Isla Mujeres shores mostly from Cuban nationals entering the country illegally. Earlier this month, Municipal police of Isla Mujeres arrested three Cuban nationals after they were seen landing the east coast in a small boat.
