helping to find William Yau Zhen Zhong since he went missing last Wednesday, The Star reported yesterday that a severely decomposed body of a boy 6- or 7-year-old has been found floating in a river near the jetty of Sungai Sireh, near the Sri Perantau flats at about 6.30pm on Thursday.
The boy was in 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.
When asked whether the body could be that of missing boy William Yau Zhen Zhong, South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Mat Yusop 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 Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital's mortuary soon after midnight and left about 30 minutes later.
Let's not speculate.
