Muscat: Family of the late Swedish DJ Avicii, who was found dead in Oman last Friday, have arrived in Oman to complete legal formalities and the repatriation procedures for the electronic dance music (EDM) star's body.

While the family has not spoken to media since the announcement of his death, Avicii's sister Linda Sterner put out a short statement on Facebook, saying, "Thank you for all kind thoughts. We love you all so much."

Avicii's brothers Anton Korber and David Bergling, when contacted by the Times of Oman, declined to comment.

Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, was found dead in Muscat on Friday afternoon, according to a statement from his publicist. "It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii," publicist Diana Baron said in a statement.
