Illegal boat missed by radar, hunt on for migrants

#Providenciales, October 28, 2018 – Turks and Caicos – Law Enforcers are now trying to round up illegal Haitians who somehow escaped radar detection and made landfall in the Chalk Sound area of Providenciales.

Three to five Haitian males have already been captured and are being held at the South Dock Road Detention Centre, Magnetic Media is told.  It is believed that up to 30 illegal migrants were on the boat, which reportedly remains unfound.  The migrants are at large.

Residents of the area reported the heavy presence this morning of police and immigration officers.

It is said the first call about the illegal landing was around 1 a.m.
