The Tuesday swept through the area by the Cruz Roja, with more than 15 people devoted to the search, was without success.

“The biggest problem we have is that the waves are of significant size, the waves and the currents are too strong, so we could not use divers in the area,” said on Tuesday Guillermo Arroyo, director of operations for the Cruz Roja.
