In a report from Bombo Radyo, DOTC Secretary Mar Roxas says, “DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo, along with the two pilots, has found dead around 7:40 A.M.

Inside the fuselage, rescuers found three bodies that were already hard to identify. In the same report, the secretary’s body was confirmed and identified after it was surfaced around 8:30 A.M.

Bombo Radyo reported that according to Secretary Roxas rescuers found the body of Secretary Robredo and the bodies of the two pilots roughly 180 feet under water and 800 meters away from the shoreline.

Today marks the third day of search and rescue operation for Secretary Robredo and the two others who were missing roughly 3 days after their boarded twin-engine Piper Seneca plane crashed off Masbate while en route from Cebu to Naga on August 18, 2012, around 4:00 P.M.

As at this time of writing, GMA News TV reported that the remains of Secretary Robredo is now inside the metal coffin and is now transported to Masbate airport.▲
