Idris “Froggy” Singh

Relatives have found the body of 23-year-old fruit vendor Idris Marcus Singh after two days of searching.

Singh disappeared under the water while bathing with relatives at Tyrico Bay, Maracas on Sunday afternoon.

His brother Emerson Singh told Guardian Media that at 5.05 pm, his drone found Singh floating approximately 500 metres from where he went missing.

Maracas police responded and Singh’s body was removed to the Forensic Science Centre for an autopsy.

Singh, who lived with his family at Endeavour Road, Chaguanas, sold fruits at his brother’s Emerson Fresh Fruits stall along Mausica Road, Mausica.

On Sunday, he went to Tyrico Bay with his older brother Antonio Singh and brother-in-law Sanjay Cunjisingh. As they were returning to shore around 4.30 pm, Singh disappeared under water. Relatives and fellow beachgoers began searching but were unsuccessful.

The Coast Guard joined the search at 6 am Monday.
