Missing 5-year-old may have been taken by crocodile

SYDNEY - 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.
