(CNN)The body of a toddler that washed up on Karmøy Island earlier this year has been identified by Norwegian police as that of Artin Irannezhad from Iran, who was previously listed as missing after his family attempted to cross the English Channel by boat in October 2020.

He is of Iranian origin and disappeared during a shipwreck in the English Channel off the coast of France on October 27, last year," Southwestern Police lead investigator Camilla Tjelle Waage said in a statement on Monday.

Artin was 18 months old when he disappeared, police said.

When the small body washed up on Norway's Karmøy Island, there were no reports of missing babies in the area and no family had contacted local police, a spokesperson for Southwestern Police told CNN on Monday.

Forensic scientists at Oslo University last week were able to match Artin's DNA with that of a relative in Norway, said the lead investigator in a statement.
