According to a press release issued by the police today, the local police received a telephone call on Saturday evening requesting assistance in the search for a missing man who was believed to have drowned.
Before the call, the local police had discovered at the village of Svojići eight foreigners, who are originally from Gambia and Senegal and who entered Croatia illegally. One man in that group was in a very poor health condition and was therefore transported to a local healthcare institution to be given medical assistance.
During the conversation with the remaining migrants, it was established that another man in that group had fallen in the River Mrežnica and that he was presumed drowned.
During the onsite investigation, a body was found in the River Mrežnica at Svojići, and also another drowned victim was found at Donje Dubrave.
The two victims are presumed to be migrants.
