Port Isabel-South Padre Press

Six people were rescued Thursday after spending 10 days without food or water on a stretch of land not far from Long Island Village. Cameron County Constables also confiscated several bundles of marijuana weighing approximately 261 pounds, Constable Pete Delgadillo said.

Constables were alerted by a call from a concerned citizen who reported seeing suspicious activity just across the channel from the private community. Residents could see people on the other side of the channel asking for food and water. A helicopter was called to help search for the people.
