The body of missing toddler, Ruben Scott has been found, Queensland Police have said.
The nation has been waiting with bated breath to hear news about the two-year-old boy who went missing on Tuesday near the Koolatah Station homestead, on the western side of Cape York Peninsula.
His body was found by police divers in a large dam located near the homestead on Friday afternoon.
‘Our thoughts go out to Ruben’s family, friends and the communities of Maramie and Kowanyama, as well as everyone involved in the search during this difficult time,’ police said in a statement.
Police divers yesterday joined the massive search for a toddler missing on a crocodile-infested property in far north Queensland.
Emergency crews, cattle station crews and graziers with private helicopters spent Wednesday searching for the boy on the station, 270km north of Karumba on the western side of Cape York Peninsula.
“Ruben is a very fun and outgoing little boy with a very sarcastic sense of humour,” his mum, Natasha Scott, told 7NEWS on Wednesday.
“He’s very gentle and always loves to do hands on things. He loves his cars, trucks and anything with wheels on them.”
Such a tragic end to this story. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
