The family of a female Chinese tourist who went missing in Cebu since Saturday morning is asking for help from everyone who could give them information and help them locate her.

Weiying Gu, 72, who was in Cebu with a group of other Chinese tourists including her husband Guoqiang Wu, was reported missing since Saturday morning.

In a Facebook message sent to Cebu Daily News, her son Hao Wu, who is based in Sydney, Australia, said Weiying suffers from dementia.

Weiying is a guest of Crown Regency Hotel and Towers located in Osmeña Boulevard, Cebu City with other Chinese tourists who are booked in a group tour under New Goldmines travel agency.

They checked in at the hotel last Friday, February 17, and are scheduled to leave on Tuesday, February 21.

Edward Tan, head of marketing and communications of J. King and Sons that manages and operates Crown Regency, said the hotel management is already coordinating with the authorities to help locate Weiying.

Hao, who may be flying in to Cebu from Australia, said his mother suffers from dementia and was seen on the hotel’s CCTV leaving the front lobby at around 3 a.m. on Saturday.

“She was wearing slippers, black T-shirt and yellow pajama trousers,” he said.

Hao calls on anyone who can give them information that can help them find her.

“They can call the Chinese Consulate through +639175495614 or through our travel agent who is staying with my father at the hotel Mr. Qi Zhu at +63917 549 5614,” said Hao.
