Mrs. Scott complained about the short time she had to share with her son.

"You used to laugh and smile when I played the videos I recorded of you, and now I only cry because I know you will never come back to me.

"I miss everything you used to do. From spitting in my face to you saying "love you".

A short video presentation was added to the post, following the memories the couple shared.

In a short video, Ruben can be seen kicking a soccer ball while walking down a footpath.

In another photo, he has a big grin on his face while happily playing with his mother.

“Even if you've devoured the whole bed just to cuddle me so you can fall asleep. Being your mother was the best decision I've ever made, ”Ms. Scott said in the post.

"I cry every day that you are not here. I cry about the fact that I thought I could have done so much more. I cry because I was not there to help you. Now I can only help you cry. "

Ruben had been reported missing since Tuesday, and his disappearance had triggered a large-scale search and rescue.

Disappointed rescue workers spoke of their frustration at the tragic outcome of the search operation.

"We were all frustrated and angry when he heard the news," SES volunteer Sean McGuinness told Courier Mail.

“People could see where the police were gathering on the bank of the dam. We assumed that he had been found there.

"Everyone had been where the police were, so it felt like" Why didn't I find him? "

At a press conference on Friday evening, chief superintendent Brian Huxley said the tragedy had hit all of Australia.

"The whole community is devastated," he said.

“Something like this is happening across the nation.

"People send their thoughts and condolences from across the country, and I can say that the family really appreciates the tremendous support."

Mr. Huxley thanked the search parties who were forced to cope with the arduous circumstances.

The search included helicopters, police divers, heat-seeking drones, horses, motorcycles and SES volunteers who dragged through the 170,000 hectare station.

"Like everyone involved in the search, everyone in the community is very sad about what happened," he said.

"The whole community is devastated."

Mr. Huxley said the original plan was to take him home, but when the search reached day four, they were forced to search the dam

Mr. Huxley also revealed that Ruben was found just 100 meters away – after the forces decided that he probably hadn't survived.

"The police, the SES, the volunteers, all worked so hard to find this little boy," he told reporters.

"Probably one of the saddest parts is that the size of the station, as intense and extensive as the search, was actually only 100 meters away."

Mr. Huxley said the original plan was to take him home, but when the search reached day four, they were forced to search the dam.

"It wasn't until long after survivability was over that we started looking at these huge waterways."

Mr. Huxley said the police have started preparing a report for the coroner.

"It is only the most terrifying situation at this stage that he ended up where he is. It will likely be the coroner's investigation of what actually happened," he said.
