“The missing nine-year-old kid is Sakira Natania Safrulla,” said Buru Police Spokesperson Ajd. Insp. Djamaludin on Thursday, Antaranews reported. 

Baesed on the locals' report, the child went missing after spending the afternoon swimming with friends at a local river. Witnesses reported to locals that Sakira had been attacked by a crocodile. Police and search and rescue team was immediately dispatched after the report was made.
