A news reporter of TV5 and two crew members previously thought missing were reported safe and sound, the network announced on Twitter late morning Sunday.


“Ligtas and aming reporter na si Romel M. Lopez at kanyang crew,” News5 AKSYON tweeted.

The team composed of Lopez, a cameraman and an assistant cameraman is currently traveling to Tuguegarao, according to the tweet.

“Kasulukuyan silang bumibiyahe papuntang Tuguegarao kasama ang grupo ni Bok Ed Lingao,” it said.

(They are currently traveling to Tuguegarao with the group of Bok Ed Lingao.)

Lopez and his team were sent to Cagayan to cover the impact of Typhoon “Ompong,” which made landfall in the province over the town of Baggao on Saturday morning.

They were feared missing after Secretary Francis Tolentino, presidential adviser for political affairs, said he was trying to locate them after the typhoon devastated the province. However, he said they could just be out of reach after communications were lost following the storm. /cbb
