MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine Embassy in Tokyo has released a list of 38 Filipinos or Filipino-Japanese missing in the earthquake and tsunami that devastated northeast Japan last week.

In an urgent note posted on its website, the embassy sought information on the whereabouts of the individuals, and asked them or people who might know them to contact the embassy as soon as possible.


“May we request the following individuals to contact the Embassy as soon as possible? May we also request those who may have information on these individuals to let the Embassy know of their situation,” the note read.

Some of the names had addresses where they were last seen. (See list below.) The initial list had only 31 names when it was posted Monday night, but seven more names were added on Tuesday.


The Embassy’s 24-hour hotline numbers are (03)5562-1570, (03)5562-1577 and (03)5562-1590 and email: [email protected]

The embassy in Tokyo dispatched on Sunday and Monday two teams to Japan’s Tohoku region to check on the situation of Filipino nationals in earthquake-affected areas.

Philippine Ambassador to Japan Manuel Lopez said the teams would contact local authorities and Filipino community leaders to inquire about casualties and provide necessities like food and water.

The embassy team joined a convoy with representatives from the Indonesian, Thai, Brunei and Malaysian embassies. “They have already reached Sendai City and have touched base with members of the Filipino community,” the embassy said.

Lopez said donations of food and other supplies for evacuees were expected to arrive soon.

Those who wish to provide donations may send them to the Embassy of the Philippines at 5-15-5 Roppongi, Minato-ku Tokyo 106-8537.
