Dry weather thwarts police operation to revisit river where William Yau was found
By SHAUN HO
SUBANG JAYA: Attempts to revisit the river along which six-year-old William Yau's body is thought to have floated to Port Klang have been unsuccessful due to the current hot weather.
A river operation by the police was cancelled after its levels were too low, caused by the hot weather this past week.
Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli said his men were unable to launch their boats into the river as the water had receded too far from its banks.
"We wanted to explore the entry points along the river through which William's body could have entered and floated downstream," said Yahaya when met Friday.
"There are two entry points into the river in Kg Bukit Lanchong. We want to see where he could have fallen in or been dumped into the river. Even his parents' house is quite close to a river - within one kilometre," he added.
Kg Bukit Lanchong is the nearest spot to the Klang river from Putra Heights where William had disappeared on Jan 16.
It is located some three kilometres from the electrical store where he was last seen by his family.
Yahaya said there were still many unanswered questions, adding that how William died was still a "mystery".
He also said he had received initial statements from William's post-mortem and was expecting a written report next week.
