By BBN Staff: At around 10:38 this morning, the lifeless body of 21-year-old Carlos Reyes was retrieved from the New River in Orange walk Town, by divers who were called in to comb the river bed for the missing men.
Since reports were made to police last night that two men jumped into the river and did not resurface, a frantic search has been underway to locate them and the coast guard was called in to assist.
Although Reyes was found, the search goes on for his friend who is believed to have shared the same fate as him, who drowned late last night after a rather random jump into the river.
