Local fishermen, with the assistance of the police, retrieved the body. Due to the advanced state of decomposition, the identity of the deceased remains unknown. When asked if the body could be that of the missing 15-year-old from Nongmensong, police stated that identification was not possible at this stage.
Family members of the missing boy went to Civil Hospital, Shillong, in an attempt to identify the body but were unable to do so due to its condition.
A post-mortem examination is scheduled for Tuesday to aid in identification.
