On Wednesday morning, the Border Patrol agents near the Arizona-Mexico border recovered the body a 7-year-old girl, who is believed to be an Indian, about 17 miles (27 kilometers) west of Lukeville.
According to reports, the girl had been traveling with four other people who were dropped near the international boundary by smugglers.
Agents from the Tucson Sector encountered two women from India who said they had become separated from a woman and two children hours earlier.
A girl’s remains were recovered a few hundred yards south of the international boundary, and an air and ground search ensued for the other migrants.
Border Patrol agents located footprints late Wednesday that indicated the remaining two members of the group crossed back into Mexico.
