<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – 17th of October 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 2019_10_17-WM507 <i>Situation</i>: 12 people pulled back to Morocco by the Marine Royale; 18 people leave Algeria, rescued to Cartagena <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Western Mediterranean <i>Summary of the Case</i> At just past 20:00 CEST in the evening of 17 October, we were contacted by some concerned relatives of somebody who had left Algeria heading for Spain. They had left the night before. We were told that there had been two boats, each carrying nine people, but friends and family of the travelers had not heard anything further. We were given two names and two phone numbers, but we could not reach the travelers. We cailled the Spanish search and rescue organisation, Salvamento Maritimo, in Almeria to inform them about the case and see if they had any information. They knew nothing about these boats. When we passed on the bad news to the relatives, they told us that they might have been heading for Cartagena. We find the Salvamento Maritimo in Cartagena. They told us that they had rescued two boats which matched the description we had been given. They did not have the names of the passengers. The following afternoon, we were phoned by our contact who told us that they had spoken to their relative and the travelers had arrived safely in Cartagena. Boza, welcome to Europe.
