U.S. Border Patrol agents rescue a lost subject and discover human skeletal remains. 

On Sunday, October 1, 2017, the Brooks County Sheriff's Office alerted Falfurrias agents of a distressed 911 caller who was lost near Encino, Texas. Agents responded to the last known GPS coordinates of the phone call and rescued a single female that had been abandoned by her smuggler. Agents provided basic medical care for the subject. 

Later that day, Rio Grande City agents discovered human skeletal remains near La Grulla, Texas. The Starr County Sheriff's Office and the local Justice of the Peace responded to recover the remains. The remains were transported to a local funeral home. 

RGV Sector urges immigrants not to jeopardize their lives by illegally entering the United States or by attempting to circumvent a checkpoint. The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and to help save lives by reporting suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.
