It is nearly the 7th of December, a full week since my high school batchmate's brother, 28-year-old Kasimir Velez, was last seen.
He is 28 years old, an able and functioning autistic. His sister says he was last seen in Monumento, Kalookan City taking a jeepney north to Malanday, Valenzuela. He was wearing a red shirt on that day.
I can imagine what the family is going through. I meant to write about how it must feel to have a loved one missing -- this is, after all, something we just see on television until it happens to somebody we know -- but I find I am at a loss for words.
I pray he find his way back soon.
