There was no trace yet to a Filipina seafarer who fell off of a cargo ship sailing off the coast of Germany over the weekend.
Missing was Jerlyn Isah Quisumbing, 24, who has been working for the Danish-flagged freighter Santa Clara.
Her father Richard Quisumbing is still hopeful and has faith that she is still alive.
“But we are also in a hurry that they will find her. Maybe she’s in a hospital somewhere,” Richard said.
Rossana, Jerlyn’s mother, said they were told that her daughter fell off the ship in an accident as the vessel was approaching the port of Bremerhaven, a coastal city in northern Germany.
