The body of a man, believed to be the Vietnamese who was reported missing after he had gone swimming off East Coast Park on Monday, was found on Tuesday morning.

A friend told The Straits Times that the body was spotted floating near a breakwater earlier in the day by a cousin of the 24-year-old Vietnamese. They then alerted the police, who arrived and recovered the body from the sea.

This comes after the discovery of a young boy's body floating off Bedok Jetty late Monday night, the third mishap in two days off Singapore's eastern coast.

Meanwhile, the search for for Singaporean student Goh Chuan Kiet, 23, who went missing off Changi on Sunday, continues. The undergraduate at SIM Global Education disappeared after he went paddle-boarding with schoolmates from his university's windsurfing club.
