Kota Kinabalu: A boy, who Daily Express reported in March was among five Indonesian fishermen kidnapped in Tambisan Island waters off Lahad Datu in January, had escaped his Abu Sayyaf captors in Sulu, an Indonesian source told the paper.

Ulta Levenia Nababan, a terrorism researcher at Jakarta-based think tank Galatea, said three sources told her the boy’s current whereabouts was unknown.

Two Abu Sayyaf men including one wanted by the Eastern Sabah Security Command are holding the Indonesian hostages, said Ulta.

Daily Express' report on the boy ran contrary to official reports that five adults had been grabbed in the latest Sulu Sea kidnapping.
