The body of a woman was found on Pyrgaki beach and that of a small child on Agiassos beach, both on the Greek island of Naxos.
The report came from naxostimes.gr last Thursday as the Greek Police and Coast Guard were investigating both scenes.
Both bodies remain unidentified but according to early reports they belong to refugees who were aboard a boat that sank on December 22 off the coast of Folegandros.
In December, a series of refugee boat accidents in the Aegean Sea killed at least 30 people in just a few days, Al Jazeera reported.
On December 17, the Greek Coast Guard found 16 bodies, including those of three women and a baby, and rescued 63 people from a boat that overturned and sank near the island of Paros.
