Sydney, Feb 8 (DPA) The family of a five-year-old who went missing Sunday in far-north Queensland while out with his seven-year-old brother fears he may have been taken by a crocodile.
The police said the boy jumped into the Daintree River to rescue his dog, but disappeared under the water.
“The seven-year-old suddenly saw the five-year-old disappear,” Inspector Dave Ellis said. “A very short time later there was a crocodile also seen.”
The Daintree River is home to many crocodiles.
