Grave mistake: Missing daughter found alive after family buries wrong body

Police are investigating to identify the body who was buried recently by a family in Maguindanao del Norte after believing that the deceased was their missing daughter.

Maguindanao del Norte Police Provincial Director PCol Sultan Salman told local media that a fisherman found the body floating off the coast of Bongo Island on July 6 and was claimed by the family of a 1st year college student who was earlier reported missing.

Believing that the body was of their missing daughter, the family brought the body to Barangay Nalkan, Datu Blah Sinsuat, and buried it in accordance with their Islamic faith.

But over the weekend, the family received a shocking phone call from their daughter, informing them that she is well, alive, and already staying in Metro Manila.

Salman said the daughter went to Metro Manila to work without informing any of her family or relatives.
