MIAMI(CBSMiami) — Coast Guard crews are searching for a Cuban migrant reported missing after a group of migrants were discovered in the Florida Keys.

Eleven Cuban migrants – found on Big Pine Key – told the U.S. Coast Guard they left Cuba on Thursday with 12 people on board a chug.

At some point on their journey to the U.S., one of the men was separated from the group after entering the water Saturday.

The identity of that man has yet to be released.

As of Monday morning, Coast Guard crews were searching by air and sea.
