A 3-year-old boy is missing after he and his mother tried to cross the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass, Texas, the U.S. Border Patrol said Thursday.

A body believed to be the boy’s mother, a 28-year-old woman from Honduras, was found Wednesday, more than a day after the pair went missing.

The article goes on to state the following:

The pair were part of a group of about a dozen people who crossed the river from Mexico near a legal border crossing in the area early Tuesday morning. Surviving members of the group reported the pair missing.

“This is heartbreaking tragedy that occurs too often,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “Border Patrol agents are using all available resources in the search for the missing boy.”

Multiple children have drowned trying to cross the river with their parents in recent months.
