A 2-year-old Brazilian girl was reportedly washed away from her family while they were attempting to cross the Rio Grande, Border Patrol said.

The girl was separated from her mother, a Haitian national, on their way across a section of the Rio Grande outside of Del Rio, Texas, late Monday, the girl’s mother told Border Patrol, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Agents from the Border Patrol Search, Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR) unit reportedly searched for the girl through Monday night and into Tuesday. BORSTAR is an elite Border Patrol unit, tasked with saving migrants stranded in the harsh terrain along the border, according to the WSJ.

“Any time a child is lost it is a tragic event,” Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz of the Del Rio sector said.

“I cannot imagine the anguish the parents of this young girl must be feeling and I hope our search efforts pay off with a positive outcome,” he continued.

In late June, 2-year-old Angie Valeria and her father, Óscar Alberto Martínez were found dead in the Rio Grande near Matamoros, Mexico. A photo of their washed up corpses went viral across social media and news media, sparking international acknowledgement of the crisis occurring at the border.

Del Rio sector Customs and Border Protection told the Daily Caller News Foundation that as of Wednesday morning there is no new information on the location of the missing girl.
