Missing boy found dead on farm
A small boy who went missing on Friday has been found dead near the Naval Officers Mess at Adiembra in the Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis of the Western Region.
Community members who gathered around the corpse at about 5:00pm told reporters that the boy, who stayed with his grandmother, was last seen on Friday following some masquerade group but never returned.
A search party was immediately organized by the family and unit Committee. According to reports, they searched through Friday night, but the search proved futile.
An eyewitness narrated that, a resident of the town who was strolling the area where the body was found heard the continuous barking of a dog and followed up only to find the lifeless body of the boy lying face down on the farm.
The body had cuts on the throat and some incisions on the stomach.
The body has been taken to the Effia-Nkwanta Hospital for autopsy.
