KLANG: A severely decomposed body of a young boy was found floating in a river near here.
South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Mat Yusop said the body was found near the jetty of Sungai Sireh, near the Sri Perantau flats at about 6.30pm on Thursday.
“Based on the height, the boy is either six or seven years old. He was wearing a yellow t-shirt and shorts and has fair skin. The T-shirt had the words 'Active Group' in white and 'Best Team' in blue on it,” he told reporters at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital.
When asked whether the body could be that of missing boy William Yau Zhen Zhong, ACP Mohamad urged the public not to speculate until post-mortem and DNA tests, scheduled for Friday morning, were completed.
“There have been no cases of missing children reported in the area recently,” he said.
William's parents, Yau Kok Kang and Goh Ying Ying, arrived at the hospital's mortuary soon after midnight and left about 30 minutes later.
