MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – The U.S Coast Guard has suspended the search for a group of 10 missing Cuban migrants off the coast of the Florida Keys.

Officials said they conducted multiple searches over a 120-hour period, covering an area nearly the size of New Hampshire.

Crews rescued eight people and recovered two bodies from the water earlier this week.

The Coast Guard said the group left Cuba a week ago, and the boat capsized Wednesday night.
