Third boy found after teens drown in river

One teenager, who was last seen on foot on the foreshore Maylands side of the river, remains unaccounted for.

"He is now with family members", police said in a brief statement.

The marine and land search operation in Maylands has been completed.

The search involvedspecialist officers from the police Mounted Section, Water Police and Police Air Wing, along with SES volunteers.

Police were pursuing the five boys who were believed to be jumping fences.

Due to the police chase, the boys' deaths are being treated as deaths in custody, and there will be a coroner's inquest into the details.

"Obviously they were scared and they were only young boys so I ask people not to be judgemental".

"We have been liaising closely with the two families", he said.

A memorial near the Swan River where two boys died on Monday. I suppose they didn't know to what extent it was going to cost them, he said.

"Although, on the information I have to date police did not physically come into contact with the two boys who disappeared underwater in the middle of the river", he said.

Commissioner Dawson said the two boys apprehended by police were provided with clothing and the attention of St John Ambulance officers. They have since been reunited with their carers.

While the desperate search for the fifth boy was underway, Mr Dawson said the surviving pair had not been charged with any offences.

The commissioner called on members of the public to provide any information or CCTV footage that may aid the investigation.

"We are hopeful he did not enter the river.we are in fact trying to locate the family of the fifth boy as I speak".

Police captured two, but the other two were spotted struggling in very deep and murky water in the middle of the river.

The Maylands Boat Ramp on Clarkson Road was blocked off for police and emergency service access only, and just after midnight, police recovered the body of one of the teenage boys.

"This is a tragedy - we share and offer our condolences".

Mr Dawson said two officers responded to the initial incident and they were joined by several Tactical Response Group officers who happened to be nearby.

"We are extensively looking for his family and people connected with him but we are concerned for his welfare".

'But I suppose these young boys, that's their way of having fun and unfortunately it costed them their lives.

"These young boys made a mistake and they paid for it with their lives", the grandfather of one of the boys told NITV today.
