KUALA LUMPUR: The body of a boy, believed to have been abducted in Jinjang on August 11, was found at the Kampung Kemensah river in Hulu Kelang, today.
The body was discovered after the suspected abductor, who is related to the victim, brought police to the location.
Police are still at the scene to conduct investigations.
Last Thursday, Noor Amila Edrus Norsham, disappeared while playing at a surau near his home at a public housing area in Jinjang, Sentul.
Kuala Lumpur Criminal Investigation Department deputy chief Assistant Commissioner Azman Mohd Isa said policemen had scoured the area since last night, but failed to locate the remains due to low light conditions.
“We took the suspect to the same location this afternoon. The boy’s body was found in a ravine near the river.
“There is a strong possibility that this is the boy who was reported kidnapped. However, we are still waiting for the results of a post-mortem examination to be done at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital,” he was quoted as saying by Berita Harian.
At press time, the motive behind the boy’s abduction remains unknown.
