Officers from the U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona discover two little sisters who are all by themselves.
U.S. Border Patrol agents are working to reunite two young sisters who were found wandering the desert between the United States and Mexico's border in Arizona, without their parents.
Agents in Yuma discovered the two little girls in a wetland near the Colorado River.
The Yuma Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol reports that "unaccompanied migrant children frequently exploit this crossing location."
Concerned about the children' well-being, a Yuma Sector agent approached them and took them to safer ground, according to the post, which also revealed that the girls had a note with the contact information for their tia.
Yuma Sector officials claimed in a Facebook post that they were working to reunite the girls with their families.
When asked what would happen to the sisters if authorities failed to find them, agents said they would be placed in protective custody while the Department of Health and Human Services searched for them.
