JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia - The Philippine Consulate General is asking the public to help identify the remains of a Filipina stuck in a morgue in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.Vice Consul Lorenzo Jungco, head of the consulate’s Assistance to Nationals Section, said the only information available was that the unidentified Filipina – whose cause of death was also unknown – was brought to the morgue of the King Fahd Hospital on May 19.
Jungco said the deceased OFW was labelled “Miss X" by the hospital due to the absence of documents that could identify her.“Nanawagan ang konsulado sa kung sino man ang nakakakilala sa namatay na kung maaari ay makipag-ugnayan sa Department of Foreign Affairs para ipagbigay alam ang identity nang namatay," he said.
