A 7-year-old boy named Li Guangsheng has allegedly been missing for the past 38 days.
In an attempt to locate him, a netizen created a Facebook account with his name and shared a post on Wednesday (8 May) appealing for help finding him.
The post has gone viral and has garnered over 4,800 shares at the time of this article.
Primary 1 student from Beacon Primary School
While not much information was shared about Guangsheng, the uniform that he was in seems to indicate that he’s a student from Beacon Primary School, located in Bukit Panjang.
Given his age, it’s likely that he’s a Primary 1 student at the school.
It also seems like Guangsheng has a knack for the arts.
Like many of us, he seems to be a big fan of the Transformer series too.
Netizens claim it’s a family dispute
While most netizens who shared the article hoped for him to be found soon, others interestingly claimed that the entire incident was made up and that this was a result of a family dispute.
