BACOOR CITY, Philippines – The body of a man who went missing at the height of torrential monsoon rains was found floating in a fishpond here Wednesday, raising the number of flood casualties.

Arzay Josue, a 22-year-old construction worker, went missing Monday morning according to his wife’s statement to the police.

His body was found floating in a fishpond near his house in Barangay Dulong Bayan here around 8 a.m. Wednesday, said city information officer Kathrina Sanchez in a text message.
