    BPAUX assists in rescue/recovery mission on first muster

    Saturday- Feb. 1, 2008
    Border Patrol Auxiliary is assisting in the search and recovery for a missing female illegal alien who was to have crossed the border within the last 8 days and was reported to be dead in the area.

    Temps at night are in the low 30's with highs in the 50's with light winds to the North.

    Working in co-operation with a local Rescue group that helps endangered illegal Aliens who have crossed illegally into the US who have medical or physical problems and are in need of help the Border Patrol Auxiliary dispatched 12 of its finest agents into the field today around 14:00 in search for a young women's body who was last seen in a small house like structure along the CA & Mexico border possibly with a child or children. Details provided by the rescue group.

    BPAUX was in the are doing routine field training and chose to assist in the search for the woman. The area is known for it's rugged terrain, steep cliffs and cold weather in this time of the year.

    BPAUX members were dispatched into several areas covering approximately 2 sq miles in search of the woman's body or any evidence of her or any small children.

    BPAUX mission is to work with local, state & federal law enforcement agencies along with border patrol to help keep America Safe.

    For more information please see the Border Patrol Auxiliary web site at www.bpaux.org

    Updates will be posted on the BPAUX web site of this occurrence as it happens.

    MD- it was at the gun club, as you just enter the area on the south.

    BP was notified, and we have talked to the BP sector head here already about the situation.

    Too bad the person who gave up the info was not there to give us more detailed information, but being that the person was an ILLEGAL he was probably afraid of anyone talking to him, let alone BPAUX!

    As I said over on the MCDC web it was a humitanitarian effort.

    here is what we put out on it today:

    Border Patrol Auxiliary Assists In Search Effort
    Woman And Infant Missing Along CA Border Believed Dead

    Boulevard, CA---What began as a routine training weekend for the San Diego based Border Patrol Auxiliary (www.BPAUX.org) turned into anything but. The group, an independent auxiliary association dedicated to educating private citizens on border security, was alerted to a developing situation on arriving at a remote area along the US/Mexican border Saturday.

    Another private group that places water stations along the border for illegal crossers was conducting an independent search effort near the Lakeside Gun Club in Jewel Valley. On approaching the group, Border Patrol Auxiliary leadership discovered they were searching for a young woman and her infant child believed lost in the area eight days prior. BPAUX notified Border Patrol who arrived at the scene and questioned the group of seven from the organization Border Angels.

    Leader Raphael Hernandez explained to Border Patrol and BPAUX they had received word from another illegal border crosser, that eight days earlier a human smuggler (Coyote) had abandoned a woman and her infant child when leading them across the border illegally into the US. Subsequently days later, an illegal border crosser reported to Border Angels he had seen a dead woman holding an infant baby in her arms in an abandoned structure near the border on the US side north of an area known to smugglers as El Longo. Mexican authorities had been notified but US Border Patrol, local law enforcement and rescue organizations had not.

    The Patrol Agent on the scene explained to Hernandez that if they had been notified in a timely fashion, a BORSTAR Border Patrol Rescue Team would have been dispatched to the area immediately and this may have been a Search and Rescue mission rather than a Search and Recovery.

    As the Border Angels were unfamiliar with this mountainous terrain, BPAUX then fielded twelve of their Red Cross Certified Professional Rescuers on the MSAR Team to scour the area to search for the lost woman and child. Inclement weather and darkness stopped the search efforts as the area is very remote, mountainous and highly dangerous. Border Patrol is engaged in an ongoing battle with drug and human smugglers in the area. BPAUX members will resume the search when the weather system clears, in support of ongoing Border Patrol efforts to find the woman and child now presumed dead.

    ‚ÄúIt is clear that if Desert Angels or the Mexican authorities had notified Border Patrol when this occurred, there might have been a different outcome.‚Ä
