A body was recovered after washing ashore in the town of Gulf Stream Thursday. It may be one of two Cuban migrants reported missing Wednesday.

As a result the U.S. Coast Guard has resumed search efforts.

Six migrants were rescued from the ocean early Wednesday morning during a routine patrol by the Coast Guard.

Their vessel came ashore in Boca Raton. They told the Coast Guard that two members of the group were missing.

The Coast Guard launched a search Wednesday but later suspended it when they didn’t find anything.
