BAGUIO CITY ––A 70-year-old French tourist, who went missing for a week, has been found alive at a ravine in Barlig town, Mountain Province on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Investigators said Jacques Francioly failed to return to his motel room after going on a tour around the town at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 14.


Eight days later, a tourist guide found Francioly at a ravine in Barangay Latang, Barlig at 3 p.m.

The search-and-rescue team immediately went to the site and brought Francioly to the Barlig District Hospital for treatment.


Police said Francioly would be transferred to Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital in Abatan, Bauko, Mountain Province once his condition becomes stable.

Investigators have yet to say how Francioly ended up at the ravine.
