Turkey's state-run news agency says Turkish coast guards have recovered the bodies of four migrants — three of them children — after a smuggler's boat carrying migrants from Syria sank on the way to Greece.

Anadolu Agency said the bodies were found Tuesday near the tiny Greek island of Farmakonissi, which is near the Turkish Aegean resort of Didim. The coast guard was searching the Aegean Sea for more possible victims.

The Turkish Coast Guard says 57 migrants have died in Turkish waters so far this year while attempting to make the perilous journey to the Greek islands.

In all, more than 700 people have died or gone missing in the Aegean Sea since the start of 2015.
