At least four people drowned and dozens are reported missing after a boat carrying Venezuelan migrants sank on its way to the Caribbean island of Curacao, according to sources.

Five survivors are in custody in Curacao for entering illegally, two of them in a hospital. The Dutch island is a popular destination for Venezuelans looking to escape food shortages, economic disaster, and an oppressive political climate.

The overcrowded vessel sailed from San Jose de la Costa in the western Venezuelan state of Falcon before striking some rocks in the sea and sinking, naval officials said. It is an area known for rough seas, but smugglers sometimes use it in hopes of avoiding patrols on Curacao's southern coast, Gouverneur said. Early Wednesday four bodies washed up on the shore of Curacao, 45 miles (70 kilometers) from the mainland. Authorities learned of the incident after relatives of one passenger called for help, he said.
