6 days past but missing farmer in Baggao, Cagayan not yet found

Baggao, Cagayan – After going missing on Wednesday, November 28, a farmer suspected to have drowned in a river in Baggao, Cagayan remains unfound, even after a series of search operations by authorities.

The missing person known as Charito Joaquin was last seen out of their house on the morning of said date to plant corn along with other residents in the area.

After the corn planting, he was said to have gone home on board his carabao. His friends believe he crossed the river riding his carabao, but while doing so, he might have been swept by the river current and got drowned.

The raincoat of the suspect was found on the river bank, but his body was not.

The suspected drowning incident transpired during the height of heavy rainfall caused by the northeast monsoon in the province.

An immediate search was made by MDRRMO Baggao along with the PNP, BFB-Baggao, and barangay officials along the Cagayan River but did not yield results.

The team even rowed down to the river’s mouth in Appari but failed to find the body.

Along with said efforts, drone and patrol search were likewise conducted.

The search for the body of Joaquin still continues, as of this writing.

In the meantime, the public may inform the Baggao Information Office on their Facebook page or contact them at 0992 245 4523 in case they come across Joaquin.

Joaquin has a fair complexion, is medium-built, approximately 5’2 tall, and was wearing shorts at the time.
