“It is now positive that the boy who was found is Artin Irannezhad. He is of Iranian origin and disappeared during a shipwreck in the English Channel off the coast of France on October 27, last year,” Southwestern Police lead investigator Camilla Tjelle Waage stated in a remark on Monday. Artin used to be 18 months previous when he disappeared, police stated. Each his oldsters died within the shipwreck, in addition to his two older siblings. The circle of relatives have been amongst 19 migrants on board the UK-bound boat, which capsized in French waters.When the small frame washed up on Norway’s Karmøy Island, there have been no stories of lacking small children within the space and no circle of relatives had contacted native police, a spokesperson for Southwestern Police instructed CNN on Monday. The blue overalls Artin used to be dressed in weren’t a Norwegian emblem, which steered he used to be now not a local, the police additionally stated. Forensic scientists at Oslo College closing week have been in a position to compare Artin’s DNA with that of a relative in Norway, stated the lead investigator in a remark.”This is a painstaking process, but we are pleased that we have now received confirmation that it is the missing boy who was found on Karmøy. This story is tragic, but at least it’s good to be able to give the relatives an answer,” Tjelle Waage stated. “The police have had an ongoing dialogue with the French authorities. We have always respected ongoing processes across national borders, but when it turned out that the boy’s relative in Norway had a kinship that was close enough, we chose to make an attempt to match that person’s DNA with that of the boy,” Tjelle Waage added.
