Thirteen migrants detained near MacArthur State Park

NORTH PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Thirteen undocumented migrants from Haiti are in custody after being found near MacArthur State Park.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office and U.S. Border Patrol detained the migrants around 2:30 a.m. Monday.

A Border Patrol spokesman said they believe one woman and 12 men came on a boat from the Bahamas.

The people on board said when they landed on Singer Island, the smuggler got out of their boat and left in a second boat.

Border Patrol and Coast Guard are now searching for the second boat.
