The brother of the Quezon City doctor who went missing a few days ago, confirmed Thursday night that his sister has been found and that the latter is alive and well.
Gian Caridad, Dr. Averille Caridad’s brother in a Facebook post said: “Good news. Dr. Averille Caridad has been found. She is alive and well, and right now she is reunited with her family.”
“We would like to thank everyone who did not hesitate in extending their help in whatever form. While we are still coordinating with the authorities to finalize matters, we ask that you give us time and privacy to get over this incident. We will provide further details soon.” He said further in his post.
Dr. Caridad was last seen getting off a tricycle on the night of October 11, in front of a condominium in QC.
Since that last sighting, Dr. Caridad did not report for work and couldn’t be reached through her cellular phone or her social media accounts.
This prompted the family to ask for police assistance in locating her. They also appealed via social media for any information on Dr. Caridad’s whereabouts.
A doctor who had been missing since late Thursday night has been found alive and well, her brother said.
Dr. Caridad’s colleagues had raised the alarm when she failed to turn up to a presentation on Friday. CCTV footage showed the 31-year-old doctor leaving her home Thursday night and taking a tricycle to a condominium.
It was the last anyone saw of her for three days, and she could not be reached through her phone or social media accounts.
