Singapore — The body of Goh Chuan Kiet, the Singaporean university student who went missing Sunday while paddle-boarding, has been recovered from the sea off Changi.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said in a statement Wednesday that a body had been found Tuesday evening near Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal.
“The body is established to be that of the male Singaporean who went missing in the waters off the National Service Resort & Country Club” on Sunday, it said.
Mr. Goh’s body was identified by family members earlier at the Singapore General Hospital mortuary, The Straits Times reported.
The 23-year-old undergraduate student was paddle-boarding with his schoolmates from SIM Global Education windsurfing club on Sunday at Changi when he disappeared suddenly.
Though the board and paddle were retrieved by rescuers and fisherman the same day, they had found no signs of Mr. Goh as the search efforts continued into the third day Tuesday.
