FIVE migrants that are believed to have arrived on a local beach have been located after a short search.

The small motor boat was found on the Pinomar beach in Guardamar del Segura in the early hours of Tuesday morning containing six life jackets and a bag with personal effects that are believed to belong to a woman.

Not long after the boat was discovered, one of the suspected occupants – a young boy – was found at a local petrol station with his clothes still soaking wet.  The Guardia Civil was called and he was taken away to receive medical attention.

Moments later, another four people – two men and two women – all adults and believed to have originated from Algeria were also found.   They are also receiving medical treatment from the Red Cross based in Torrevieja.
