MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Coast Guard crews are searching for survivors after a boat reportedly carrying more than a dozen Cuban migrants capsized.

Crews were searching by air and sea Monday after three Cuban migrants told them about the incident.

The Cuban migrants said they had left Cuba on Tuesday with 23 people on board a rustic vessel. That vessel reportedly capsized Wednesday evening.

According to the Coast Guard, the three Cuban migrants who told them about the incident were found on an island near Big Pine Key.
