Search for an immigrant boat

The search for a wooden boat occupied by 20 people had to be abandoned due to the bad weather conditions. 

 

 Both the Sasemar reconnaissance aircraft and a lifeboat crew had to stop searching for the immigrants, for their own safety. They are continuing the search. According to information from the Guardia Civil, the boat in question left Senegal on April 5 to cross the Atlantic heading for the Canary Islands. With every day that passes, the chances of finding the people on board are dwindling.
