Authorities on Monday were looking for a migrant for the second day in a row to no avail, after he jumped into the sea.

The Joint Rescue Coordination Center told the Cyprus Mail that a helicopter was being used while there was still light to try and locate the missing migrant but so far, his whereabouts had not been identified.

On Sunday, authorities rescued 190 migrants who arrived off the coast of Cape Greco when they were about 10 nautical miles away from the shore.

As they approached the coast at around two nautical miles left, the migrant jumped into the waters.
