Two children in New Caledonia have found the body of a teenager who went missing in wild weather last week.
The local newspaper says the body of the 18-year-old from Houailou was found on Saturday.
He carried away last Wednesday when a group of five young people tried to cross a river which had swollen by heavy rain in the aftermath of Cyclone Freda.
The tropical depression affected New Caledonia for several days and also claimed a life on Lifou where a man drowned.
Heavy rain and strong winds caused extensive flooding and disruptions across the territory.
