Year-old baby boy Liu Zhi Xian, who had gone missing while under the care of a babysitter in Johor Baru, is believed to be dead, reported Guang Ming Daily.
The boy's father Liu Gui Lin, 27, said police had found a scalp beside a river after questioning the babysitter's husband.
He said the police would carry out a DNA test.
However, Liu said his ex-girlfriend, the boy's mother, refused to believe it and was still searching for the boy,
Last week, China Press reported that the boy's mother left Zhi Xian with the babysitter less than a month ago and found her son missing when she went to pick him up on June 28.
