Little more info about the girl.


Filipino-Belgian girl, 17, reported missing

Police in Cebu City have asked the public to help locate a 17-year-old Filipino-Belgian girl who disappeared  on Saturday night after leaving the hotel where  she and her father were staying.

The photo of Roxanne Cerckel was released close to midnight on Sunday by the Abellana Police Precinct on its official Facebook page after the 24-hour required period within which a person can be officially declared as missing has lapsed.

Inspector Gomercendo Mandawe, deputy chief of the Abellana Police Precinct, said in a phone interview that the girl’s father, Belgian national Paul Cerckel, went to the station early on Sunday to ask for assistance because his daughter did not return after leaving the hotel at around 11 p.m. on Saturday, December 29. 

Cerckel and his daughter are residents of Damaguete in Negros Oriental who are in Cebu for an out of town trip and are billeted in one of Cebu City’s prominent hotels.

I assumed when there was a post on her FB page at almost the exact time of the start of this thread, that she was alive and well, and right where she wanted to be.
