Cuarte said she was able to trace the whereabouts of the wallet owner with the help of airline personnel. She added that the passenger is about to board an Asiana Airlines plane bound for Incheon, South Korea when she found him.

Avomsi chief Librado Matibag said Cuarte reported to his office that she found a missing wallet stuffed with cash. He added that he directed her to immediately inform the different airline personnel on duty to locate the wallet’s owner.
