      Body Recovered.
      All doubts as to whether William
      Moen, a Mittagong Farm Homes boy,
      had been drowned or had run away
      were set at rest on Saturday when
      his body was found in the pool at
      Berrima -where he had been swim
      ming. Moen was with a party of
      boys from the Home who went
      swimming on Thursday; 25th Janu
      ary. He was missed when roll-call
      was made.
      Efforts to recover his body by the
      use of grappling irons and a diver
      proved unsuccessful and it was
      thought possible that Moen had taken
      the swimming party as an oppor
      tunity to run away. Some children
      picking blackberries near the swim
      ming pool first noticed the body,
      which was recovered by Constable
      Hardy, of Moss Vale, who was in the
      Moen was 12 years of age and was
      of excellent character. Officers who
      had come in contact with him did
      not hold the view that he had run
      away as he was perfectly satisfied
      with life at the Homes.
