Two on-the-job trainees (OJTs) at the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) helped in tracing a nun so that the wallet she had left at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport's (NAIA) Terminal 3 almost a year ago could be returned to her. The wallet contained P39,000 cash.

Airport Police Corporal Reynon Flores identified the two tourism students from Northwestern University in Ilocos Norte as Ninotchka Janine Pascua and Kathlene Joy Bacud.

The wallet was returned to Sister Mary Emilia Lamunda by the OJTs who are currently undergoing on-the-job training at the lost and found section of the NAIA Intelligence and Investigation Division.

According to Flores, they instructed Pascua and Bacud to do some public service by doing "detective" work.

The two students were handed a copy of a receipt of a travel agency located in Vigan, Ilocos Sur where they inquired about the whereabouts of Lamunda who was traced to be from the Benedictine Nuns of Eucharistic King.

Flores said Lamunda is the owner of a brown wallet containing more than P39,000 cash, which was lost and found by airport janitress Linda Villablanca at NAIA Terminal 3 April last year.

The nun was in total disbelief when the wallet was handed back to her.

"God is really good. I never expected to recover the money, but through the help of the two students of Northwestern University, it was returned to me. Miracles do happen. And I am thankful that all these people are instrumental for the recovery of my long lost wallet. Thank you very much."
