Melbourne, Aug 21 : The dead body of nine-year-old boy of Indian origin Yadav Munohur was identified by his parents after it was fished out from a Melbourne creek this morning, the police confirmed.
The body was pulled from Gardiner's Creek in Kooyong this morning about 70 meter downstream from where thongs belonging to nine-year-old Yadav were found on Sunday, reported the Herald Sun.
Yadav had been missing since August 7.
His body spotted this morning by some construction workers who thereafter reported it to the police.
Yadav disappeared after pleading with his mother to be allowed to play at a nearby reserve late in the afternoon.
When she asked him to wait for her, Yadav ran from the family's Glenferrie Rd flat.
