NIBONG TEBAL - The body of four-year-old Mohd Amir Khusairi who went missing while playing near the jetty in Pulau Aman, an island off the coast of Bukit Tambun here, has been found.

A fisherman stumbled upon the dead body of Mohd Amir floating in the sea at about 11.45am Saturday.

His body was retrieved and sent to the nearest hospital for a post-mortem.

On Friday, Mohd Amir was reported missing while playing with his siblings near the island's jetty in the morning.

An entire day's search by police aided by local villagers failed to find him within the shores and on the hill in the island.
