how awful for the children. some of which would never have saw a dead body before. like something you would see in a crime drama. children finding bodies. i hope it will bring relief to the family of the missing person. but it would not be what they wanted to hear.

Poor children having to come across such a sight. Hoping the body is identified and the family are strong enough to come to terms with what has happened
