Three bodies were recovered and seven suspected migrants were rescued off the Florida coast on Thursday after their vessel capsized, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Search-and-rescue crews aboard a Coast Guard cutter and an HC-130 are looking for two people 75 miles northeast of West Palm Beach, the Coast Guard said in a statement.

It was not immediately clear what caused the 24-foot vessel to overturn. A Royal Netherlands Navy ship was en route to Key West, Fla. when it discovered the seven survivors atop the ship's hull.

No other details were immediately available.
