Body of student missing for 4 days found in Big Wave Bay, Shek O

A young woman’s body was found floating in the sea off the Big Wave Bay beach in Shek O Sunday morning.

Police, who believed it might be the body of the secondary school student who had been missing for four days, immediately contacted her family.

When the student’s father recognized the body as his daughter’s, he collapsed in tears, Apple Daily reported Monday.

Lee Hiu-kwan, 20, went missing on Wednesday last week.

Before leaving her family home in Yiu Tung Estate in Shau Kei Wan, she told her friends she was going to jump off a cliff in Shek O.

Her parents reported the case to the police at once.

A search led by the Government Flying Service and fire services was carried out, with rescue helicopters scouring the Shek O area last week, but nothing was found.

Lee, who was due to take the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education examination in April, felt under a lot of pressure, the report said.
