CANCUN, Q. Roo.- Authorities have found the body of the Canadian tourist who disappeared Wednesday Nov. 18 while swimming off the beach facing the Iberostar hotel in Cancun’s hotel zone.

The woman, identified as Dayana N, 22, was reported missing Wednesday night by her companion, who was also swept out to sea by a strong current. The companion managed to get out of the water safely and requested the support of emergency rescue personnel.

The beach near the Iberostar is considered risky for swimming because it is open sea and the waves there are strong.

The operating coordinator of the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (Zofemat) reported that they found the lifeless body of the tourist on the Delfines beach on Thursday.
