Desperate Search Underway for 200 Senegalese Migrants Vanished in Vast Atlantic Ocean

SALVAMENTO MARITIMO VIA AFP

Spain’s coastguard has launched a search operation for a boat carrying approximately 200 migrants that went missing in the Atlantic Ocean after departing from the coast of Senegal. The rescue plane, based in the Canary Islands, has been scanning a wide area south of Gran Canaria and Tenerife in an attempt to locate the vessel, but with no success so far.

Helena Maleno, the head of Spanish NGO Caminando Fronteras, which assists distressed boats, confirmed that a boat had departed from the southern town of Kafountine on June 27th with around 200 people on board. Maleno explained that the families of the migrants had reported the boat’s disappearance after several days with no news, prompting the NGO to inform the Spanish and Moroccan authorities.

The Atlantic route is known for its dangerous conditions, including strong currents, and migrants often take these perilous journeys aboard overcrowded and unseaworthy boats. The number of migrant crossings to the Atlantic archipelago has increased since late 2019 when stricter patrols along Europe’s southern coast resulted in a decline in Mediterranean crossings.
