A dead body has been found in the search for Ayman Ksebe, a missing 5-year-old who was swept out to sea at Dolls Point at Sandringham Beach in southern Sydney, Australia.

Police told NineMSN that the body is Ksebe.

Ksebe’s older brother saw him disappear under the water, and tried to save him, but failed.

Rouba Ksebe began screaming as she realized what had happened and officials moved to save the boy, who doesn’t know how to swim, reported the Sydney Morning Herald. The situation happened started around 3:45 p.m. on December 22 in front of the Georges River 16-foot Sailing Club on Sanoni Avenue.

Most of the beach was cordoned off during the search.
