They used a chicken as bait to lure the crocodile back out of the water and it was trapped in a snare four days later.

Locals cut open the reptile’s stomach and found clothes belonging to Ricky as well as a number of human remains.

An officer from the Sarawak Fire and Rescue Operations Center said:

“At about 9:15 am, the crocodile took the bait, a chicken, attached to a hook laid by a team at a spot about three miles away from where the boy was last seen.

“The crocodile was pulled onto the shore where its stomach was checked. “Sadly, there were human remains inside and these were identified as belonging to the missing teenager.”

The boy’s remains were taken home by the family for him to be given a funeral in their village.
