A South Korean boy who first raised the alarm about the sinking Sewol ferry has been found drowned, his parents believe.
Reuters news agency reports that the boy's parents had seen his body and clothes and concluded he was their son, but he has not been formally identified with a DNA test.
NBC News Correspondent Bill Neely reports that the boy - whose family name is Choi - has been missing for a week:
It's being reported the body of Korean boy who first rang emergency services to say ferry was sinking is found. Parents believe it's him.
The boy's family name is Choi. His call came 3 minutes before anyone from the crew of #Sewol rang for help. He has been missing for a week.
