Authorities say as many as four groups of boaters arrived in the Florida Keys on Christmas Day.
The first report came in around 4:15 a.m. Friday in the parking lot of a Walgreen's, when 15 Cuban migrants were reported, Monroe County Sheriff's Office officials said. Deputies and Customs and Border Protection responded and CBP took custody of the migrants.
About five hours later a group of 17-23 migrants made it to shore at the 75 mile marker on Lower Matecumbe Key. One or more may have been dehydrated and all were taken into custody by CBP.
At 9:30 a.m., an unknown number of migrants were reported to be on shore at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park in Key West. The report was turned over to Key West Police.
Around 12:30 p.m., a migrant was found on Grassy Key at the 57.7 mile marker. The migrant, who may have been part of one of the earlier landings, was also turned over to CBP.
