The body of a missing 8-year-old boy, Pranav Vivekanandan, has been pulled from a pond north of Canberra by specialist divers.
Pranav was reported missing after the body of a woman and a young boy were discovered in Yerrabi Pond at Gungahlin.
ACT Police confirmed all three people were related and went missing on Saturday.
In a statement, ACT Police said:
“Sadly, the 8-year-old boy we posted about as missing yesterday, has been located deceased in Yerrabi Pond. The investigations into his death, and those of his mother and brother who were also discovered deceased in Yerrabi Pond yesterday, are continuing. At this stage, police do not believe any other party was involved. A report is being prepared for the Coroner.”
The bodies of Pranav’s mother and brother were found after a passer-by spotted them floating in the pond.
ACT police said the circumstances surrounding the three deaths are being investigated, and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
