According to the reports, Roda Magtulis lost contact with her family in the Philippines and they were greatly concerned about it. Through social media, the family of Magtulis is asking for help from the public to locate the missing OFW who is said to be a close friend of Villavende and the one who helped acquire a visa in Kuwait.

The family of Magtulis lost contact with her since January 1st, just a few days after news of Villavende’s passing surfaced. Rumors were also formed saying that Magtulis could be the witness of the incident that claimed the life of Villavende.

The news regarding the missing OFW spread out and an investigation was conducted to locate the Filipina. It was later found out that she is under the custody of the Philippine Embassy after she sought refuge fearing that she will face the same fate as with her friend Jeanelyn.

Currently, Magtulis is housed at the Philippine Embassy. He reportedly did not suffer from any harsh treatment from her employer but was just afraid to go back to work. She does not want to return to her employer and wishes to return home.

There is an ongoing total deployment ban of Filipino workers to Kuwait.
