The family of an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) is asking for help after their relative in Saudi Arabia failed to return to the residence of his employer after he went out to send money.
According to John Dave Montefalco, his brother John Lord, 26, failed to return to his employer’s residence. John Lord was asked by one of his co-workers to send money but he has never returned since then.
“Hinahanap namin siya, tinatawagan, mga kasama niya din sabi nila wala, hindi na daw nakauwi nung gabing ‘yun,” says John Dave who is from Mati City, Davao Oriental.
According to the brother of John Lord, his brother is working for a royal family in Riyadh. They also confirmed that John Lord don’t have enemies and his employers were treating him well.
It is said that John Lord was asked by his female co-worker to send money last October 6 but he failed to return home since then. The OFW’s mother who is working in Abu Dhabi is very worried about him.
“Siya naapektuhan kung sa maghahanap, kung saan na kuya ko,” says John Dave.
OWWA Administrator Hans Leo Cacdac already heard the incident regarding the missing OFW. He encouraged the family of John Lord to stay calm.
“Kasalukuyang may effort na hinahanap siya ngayon. Ako naman po may kumpiyansa na mahahanap siya. Nasa panahon pa tayo na nagsasagawa pa ‘yung search kaya may konting paghihintay pa bago natin malaman kung nasaan siya,” says Cacdac.
