Parents 'need answers' about river tragedy thumbnail

KAYDEN Fleck's parents have urged anyone who saw their two boys on the day of the tragedy to contact police.
Speaking to the BBC they said the "two musketeers" had been playing outside in the backyard of their old home while they were in the process of moving to a new house.
Their     father Darrel had been taking down a shed in the garden: "I set the drill down and the boys were gone. I turned my back and they were away within seconds. Within minutes we were out to look for them. We never thought to look near the river first because they've never been there alone in their lives."
It was only the cry of brother Jayden which made them realise something had gone wrong. They said Jayden came running toward them with his clothes soaked. He has since told his parents he tried to help his brother out of the water but couldn't reach him. He said they just wanted to see the ducks.
The parents urged: "We need answers.... we cannot put the pieces of this puzzle together," said father Darrel.
