Ocean drifter washed up at Marshall Island where inhabitants found him wearing worned off shorts and underwear.
He sailed from a port near Tapalucha, Mexico bordering Guatemala. His teenage Mexican young companion died four weeks into the drift because he didn't want to eat raw fish, which the journey began on December 21, 2012. They went out for a day of shark fishing and were caught in a storm and were drifted further into the Pacific Ocean.
Alvarengo has lived in Mexico for 15 years and wants to go back to Mexico.
Authorities in Mexico and El Salvador are trying to verify his story.
