A man's body was found in the water at Sengkang Riverside Park this morning (Sep 29).

He was last seen at around 8pm at his home at Block 281B Sengkang East Avenue.
Rick told Stomp that he received news of Bok Hui's body being found at around 9am today.
"We were shocked," said Rick.
"It's so sad because he was so young. He was only around 25 years old."
The family is waiting for news on how to retrieve the body.

"A 25-year-old man was found motionless in the waters of the said location and was pronounced dead by paramedics at scene," he said.
