Police at Phoenix, north of Durban, has warned the public not to jump to conclusions that the decomposed body of a child found dumped in a bush is that of Miguel Louw.
The nine-year-old went missing in July. A 43-year-old man, Mohamed Ibrahim has been arrested for the alleged kidnapping of Louw and granted R2 500 bail.
This is the second time that the decomposing remains of a child linked to a high profile case have been found dumped in Phoenix.
The first major incident occurred in 2015 where nine-year-old Shahiel Sewpujan was discovered dumped in a sewer.
SAPS spokesperson Thembeka Mbhele says police will release a statement once the body has been positively identified.
