U.S. Customs and Border Protection says an Indian child was found dead in the desert near Lukeville on Thursday morning.

A young girl believed to be from India was found dead on the USA side of the border in Arizona Wednesday, and authorities say she was likely forced into making the remote crossing by smugglers.

Border Patrol agents got the information on the girl's movements from two women from India who told officials they'd been separated from a woman and two children travelling in their group hours earlier. It is believed that every year nearly ten thousand people from India are cheated by agents who promise to get them into the United States of America and drop them off at the border.

"Agents took the two women into custody and began searching the area north of the global border in remote terrain seven miles west of Quitobaquito Springs", the agency said in a statement.

Last week in Texas, smugglers driving a Chevrolet Suburban with 18 illegal immigrants in it crashed the vehicle.

The area is reportedly "rugged desert wilderness with few backcountry roads and little to no resources".

US and Mexican authorities have searched, but as of Thursday night said they had not located anyone else from the group.

Authorities in Mexico have continued to search their side of the border for the other two group members but have yet to locate them. "This is a senseless death driven by cartels who are profiting from putting lives at risk".
