The bodies of three missing surfers, including a man reportedly from San Diego, have been found, according to Mexican authorities.

A source in the Baja California Attorney General’s Office confirmed Friday morning that the bodies were located in an isolated area near La Bocana, about 130 miles south of San Diego.

The three surfers were reported missing through social media posts earlier this week, with Baja California authorities officially announcing their disappearance in a press release Thursday.

The surfers were a San Diego man named Jack Carter Rhoad and Australian brothers Jake and Callum Robinson.

The attorney general’s office has not confirmed the men’s identities.

The men were surfing an area near Santo Tomás, about 80 miles south of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Baja California Attorney General María Elena Andrade Ramírez said they lost valuable time in the search for the men because their families did not immediately report them missing. The last time the men’s families heard from them was Saturday, April 27, but they didn’t notify police until a few days ago, when the men didn’t show up at an Airbnb near K38 — another popular Baja surfing spot much closer to the border.

A woman and two men were taken into custody and considered persons of interest. The woman was found with a phone belonging to one of the Australian surfers, and also had a bag of drugs, the attorney general said Thursday.

The source in the attorney general’s office said it is too early in the investigation for an official cause of de*ath.

The white pickup truck belonging to the San Diego man was located Wednesday, and had been set on fire.

The attorney general’s office, the FBI and U.S. and Australian consulate officials were all working in coordination with the case.

The FBI says they are in contact with the U.S. citizen’s family.
