She posted a photo of the driver with a caption, “My daughter Jillian Athea Aligway Boc and her friends were having lunch at SM and rode his jeepney on their way back to XUJHS. Jill was aware already that her iphone is missing halfway of their ride and think that she left it at SM. But, she still has to attend classes. She called me at around 4:30 to accompany her at SM to find it. We asked the guards, the tenants and we even reported it to the mall authorities. I tried calling the phone and it always rang. I also sent messages to contact my number. But, there was no reply. It was around 7 pm when my phone rang and it was the jeepney driver telling me that he found Jill’s iphone under his jeepney’s seat (front seat) where Jill and friends were sitting. He did not hear my missed calls since the Iphone was in the silent mode.Until the time that he needed to gas up and open the seat. He gave it to his wife when he got home and was able to read the pop-up messages that I sent. Immediately, nagpa load intawn ug dali dali ang driver to contact me. So, we rushed to their place and get the phone.
We salute and thank you, Noy Salvador!”
