Cape Town - Western Cape police are looking for a man who was the last person to be seen with a 3-year-old George boy before his body was found, the Cape Times reported on Friday.

The man was seen leading Simoxolilile Linosa away from the vicinity of his Thembalethu home a week ago.

Southern Cape police spokesperson Bernadine Steyn said two boys discovered the toddler's body on Thursday afternoon, in a river about two kilometres from where he went missing.

An inquest was opened and an autopsy would determine whether the toddler drowned or died by other means.

A picture in the newspaper showed a dark man with a facial scar. He was apparently wearing a white Adidas top.
