DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) — Thirteen people were rescued Friday and as many as three others were missing after a suspected immigrant smuggling boat dropped the group off in the ocean off a Southern California beach, authorities said.

The rescue effort was focused on the waters off the city of Del Mar, about 30 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Firefighters, lifeguards and other agencies responded after authorities received reports of people in the water calling for help in Spanish at about 4:30 a.m., a city statement said.
