CITY OF NAGA, Bicol Region, 23May2016 (BicolToday.com) – Netizen Daniela Manalo is desperate of locating her father whom she has not seen for 33 years since she was a small child.
Claiming to be working now in London, United Kingdom, as health care assistant under the name of Daniella Burke mentioned in her Facebook account, carrying her husband’s family name, Daniela said she is native of Isabel, Leyte.
According to her brief letter to online news BicolToday.com whom she believes can help locate her father she had not seen for a long time.
She remembers her father’s name is Danilo Manalo and has a brother called Pal Manalo.
She had learned from his father’s former officemate that Danilo Manalo is from Naga City, or somewhere in the Bicol Region.
She told BicolToday.com that she is hoping she can establish contact with her father.
But, she did not mention the circumstances on how they got separated when she was a small child – a deeply personal story that only she and her father would understand.
Here is the text of her FB message:
