Pekan police found human skeletal remains in a car that was pulled out of Sungai Api-Api in Nenasi, Pahang, yesterday (23 July).
According to NST, the human skeletal remains are believed to be of the man who was reported missing about 10 months ago.
An elderly man carrying out some work near the riverbank discovered the submerged Nissan Grand Livina at 11.40am.
Pekan police chief Superintendent Mohd Zaidi Mat Zin said the car was damaged to the front, left and right sides.
Initial inspections revealed a body covered in mud and a worker’s pass registered in the name of Muhammad Iman Aqmar.
The remains have been sent to the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital in Kuantan for post-mortem. The car was towed to the Pekan district police headquarters for further investigation.
A check on the vehicle’s registration number found it was linked to a missing person report made in Pasir Gudang, Johor by family members of a man named Muhammad Iman Aqmar Dzulkarnain.
On 30 October last year, a woman, Asmawati Kadir, 55, lodged a police report regarding her missing son Muhammad Iman Aqmar, 24.
He was unreachable after leaving home in Johor around 1am the day earlier for work in Kemaman, Terengganu.
