The U.S. Coast Guard has ended its operation off the Palm Beach County coast.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says the Coast Guard intercepted a boat at least 12 miles offshore.

The boat was towed to land and the Sheriff's Office says U.S. Border Patrol took migrants who were on the vessel into custody.

We are still working to learn how many migrants were apprehended.
