KUCH­ING: The body of a man, who was last seen two days ago, was re­cov­ered from the river at Kam­pung Bako yes­ter­day morn­ing.

The 37-year- old di­vorced fa­ther of five, iden­ti­fied as Muzali Mu­min, was said to have made his way from his house at Kam­pung Tabuan Me­layu to visit his chil­dren stay­ing with their mother at Kam­pung Bako on Tues­day night.

How­ever, his chil­dren were not around at their mother’s house when he ar­rived, and he was last seen by vil­lagers hang­ing out alone at a ter­mi­nal by the river.

When he did not re­turn to his own vil­lage, fam­ily mem­bers sus­pected that he had fallen into the river and be­gan search­ing along the river the fol­low­ing day.

Lo­cal vil­lagers man­aged to lo­cate his body, clad in a black shirt and shorts, around 8am yes­ter­day and handed over the re­mains to the police who trans­ported it to Sarawak Gen­eral Hospi­tal.

Dis­trict police chief ACP Abang Ah­mad Abang Ju­lai, who con­firmed the in­ci­dent, said the iden­tity of the de­ceased was con­firmed by his fa­ther, and the case has been clas­si­fied as sud­den death.
