Greek authorities say a toddler’s body has been retrieved off the shore of Lesbos island in the eastern Aegean Sea.
The boy, aged 2 to 3, was wearing an orange life jacket on top of his clothes, according to a coast guard statement. An autopsy will be performed on the island of Lesbos.
The coast guard had announced earlier that because of good weather, no fatalities had been recorded Saturday, the first such day since Oct. 27.
There had been no reports of a missing child from today’s arrivals, a coast guard spokeswoman told The Associated Press on customary condition of anonymity.
“Until we identify the boy, we cannot exclude anything,” she said, leaving open the possibility that the child may have drowned before Saturday.
