A 38-year-old Filipina domestic helper remains missing three days after mysteriously disappearing since she left her employer’s home on Lyttelton Road in Mid-Levels on Sunday morning for her day off.

An officer of the Consulate said Wednesday, Dec 22, that she tried to reach the missing woman, Gemma Baflor Hinaloc, by phone but with no success.

Welfare Officer Virsie Tamayao from the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration said she tried to call the woman’s phone number after reading a report about Hinaloc’s disappearance, but no one was answering.


Tamayao said Hinaloc had been serving the same employer for the past 7 years and had already claimed her long service pay.

None of her relatives and friends has contacted the Consulate to enquire about Hinaloc, a native of Bohol, said Tamayao.

The Hong Kong Police also said that it had not received any call from the public since it issued an appeal on Tuesday for information on the woman.


A police spokeswoman said Hinaloc was reported by her employer as missing on Monday, after she failed to return from her holiday on the evening of Dec 19. She’s believed to have gone missing in Central.

The OWWA Hong Kong head said she had sent the woman’s family a message about the incident.


Hinaloc was described by the police in a press release Tuesday as about 5-feet-4 tall, 60 kilograms in weight and chubby. She has a round face with yellow complexion and long black hair, according to the statement.

The helper was last seen wearing a black jacket, grey trousers, black sandals and a black cap, and was carrying a white rucksack.
