Police are investigating the discovery of a mummified boy, slumped "like he was sleeping" at the table of a yacht adrift in the Pacific. He is believed to be a German sailor whose last message, on a sailor's internet forum, was a tribute to his wife, who left him in 2008 and died two years later.

Enquiries in Pakistan, based on a titanium plate in his left femur, have led nowhere.
