BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — Police say the bodies of five drowned men have been found along Colombia’s coast, and they suspect the men could have travelled from a Caribbean island in an attempt to reach Central America.

Uraba police Col. Raul Antonio Riano tells Caracol Radio that the men’s bodies show no sign of violence.

The bodies were found Saturday at the mouth of the Atrato river in the Gulf of Uraba.

Riano says officials are trying to identify the five, who were found with no documents.
