President Duterte Extends PH’s Help to Locate Missing OFW in Saudi Arabia

OFW International

President Rodrigo Duterte is extending the helping arm of the Philippine Government in locating Diosalyn Seva, a Saudi Arabia-based Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) who has been missing since last year.

In a report posted by The Filipino Times, Duterte came to know about Seva’s situation when he visited V. Luna General Hospital in August of last year. Seva’s brother, Sgt. Michael Joe Fabian was among the wounded soldiers the President visited and in the process, asked for the Chief Executive’s help to locate her sister.

GMA News on the other hand has it that Special Assistant of the Office of Migrant Workers’ Affairs in Saudi Arabia Moh’d Noordin Pendosina Lomondot is leading the search bloc, together with a team from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

The source added that Seva went missing after “she left her employer whom she accused of maltreating her and violating her contract” last year.

Lomondot has already contracted the recruitment agency that deployed Seva, and they promised to cooperate with the search, as well as local authorities and various Filipino groups.

Six other OFWs are also reported missing in Saudi Arabia, added Lomondot.

For those who have any leads on Seva’s or that of the other missing OFWs’ whereabouts, please contact the Philippine Consulate in Jeddah at 0555219613 or via email at
