Thane, Jul 3: Body of an 8-year-old school student, who went 'missing' after being allegedly abducted on Monday evening was found in the jungles of Bhayander, police said on Friday.

The victim's mother, who had recently undergone a surgery was on medication and was advised bed rest and hence could not come downstairs to pick her daughter up.
