DEVINE, Texas - The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) are searching for the driver and passenger of a semi-truck that had eight undocumented immigrants inside.

Authorities were called to a weigh station in Frio County, south of Devine, at about 8:30 a.m for a truck that failed to stop. Police said the driver and passenger fled on foot immediately and disappeared into a field of thick bush.

Inside the truck were eight undocumented men hidden in the covered trailer.

The undocumented individuals were turned over to U.S. Border Patrol.
