A CHARRED body of a man was found when firemen fought a hillfire that broke out at Fei Ngo Shan early yesterday.

A wallet and an identify card belonging to a 51-year-old man surnamed Chan were found under the body. Last month, Chan was reported missing from his home in Tin Sam Estate, Sha Tin. The missing man's family was called to help identify the body. Although they could not confirm it was Chan, they burned joss sticks and paper offerings.
