The man was only nine years old when his father disappeared during the tragic event which claimed more than 5,000 lives in Thailand.

According to the Thailand's based, Phuket Wan Tourism News, the man, originally from Nepal, spent most of his life in Burma. He was identified as a tsunami victim on January 18, 2006, but no relative came to reclaim his body earlier.

The report claims that his now-grown 19-year-old son, who now lives in Khao Lak, and his daughter, who now lives in Phuket, have took back the body yesterday with the help of the Hindu Association of Phuket, and held a cremation ceremony.

The now 19-year-old had reached out to local authorities and provided a DNA sample which was matched to his father's. However, Nepalese government hasn't confirmed the news yet.

Still there are believed to be 416 unclaimed bodies in Thailand.

The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was an undersea megathrust earthquake with an epicenter off the west coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and Tsunami was one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history which claimed lives of over 230,000 people in fourteen countries.
