Family members of a missing person are now grieving after finding the skeleton of their relative just meters away from his house in Tungawan, Zamboanga Sibugay last Saturday.

The victim was identifed as Regalado Salazar Sto Tomas, 70-years old, single and a resident of Barangay Tigbucay.

A report from the Police Regional Office-9 said that last Saturday, a certain Denis Gamutan requested the help of barangay officials to find his uncle who has been missing for at least a month.

Last Sunday afternoon, barangay officials and personnel went to the missing person’s residence and found a skeleton at least a hundred meters away from the house.

The skeleton was identified by family members as Sto Tomas based on the clothes and necklace found in the area where the skeleton was found.

Tungawan police are now conducting a follow-up investigation to determine the presence of foul play in the incident.  (LAJ)
