A British woman has been missing in the Philippines for almost three weeks – and there is no doubt that someone could tell her family, even anonymously, what has happened to her.

Police hold grave fears for 56-year-old mother of two Carole Day, who disappeared in the Philippines during a month in which three UK men have been murdered.
Strawberry-blonde Carole, originally from Stoke on Trent but in recent years a resident of Hong Kong, vanished after checking out of her hotel in Manila on September 12 and police admit they have no clues as to her whereabouts or what could have happened to her.
The widow of a British High Court judge who was based in Hong Kong, Carole had travelled to the Philippines to meet contacts in the interior design and furniture business.
A former long distance runner and model, she had been due to fly to Thailand on September 12 but did not arrive at Manila airport and there has been no word of her since.
Mrs Day’s 25-year-old son Jai, who has flown to Manila to help national police in the hunt for his mother, told me in a phone call that he and his 21-year-old brother Jamie were ‘extremely worried’ because there had been absolutely no news.
Their father, Justice Richard Day, died six years ago and their mother had kept in constant touch with her sons whenever she travelled.
‘She’s the kind of person who phones several times a day to see how things are,’ said Jai.
‘She gave us no sign that anything was untoward.’
Carole was last seen at a furniture showroom in Manila on September 12.
She had then been due to fly to Phuket, in Thailand’s south, before flying to Hong Kong for a friend’s funeral. She was also due to fly to London last week for a wedding.
Jai has been to all the hospitals in Manila and there are no unidentified Western women there.
He said he doubted that his mother had been kidnapped because there had been no ransom demand. The police, however, fear a gang has kidnapped her in order to extract money from her credit card. If that was the case, her fate would hang in the balance.
A spokeswoman for the British Embassy in Manila said they had been alerted to Mrs Day’s disappearance. ‘We are giving her family full consular assistance,’ she said.
Three British men have been murdered in the Philippines during September.
The first was Scotsman John Macdonald, 28, who was stabbed to death by the boyfriend of a woman Mr Macdonald had befriended.
Next came the shooting murder of British businessman Anthony Nicolas, 64, from London, who died when he and his wife were ambushed.
Then came the shooting death of sea captain Bruce Jones, 50, who was believed to have been the victim of a gun-running cartel.
Two American men have also been shot dead in the Philippines this month.
Little wonder, then, that fears for Carole grow by the day…

    I have sent Jai a number of emails that Carole sent to me regarding Tschai Ma
    and told him to do what he thought was appropriate with them regarding certain actions concerning Mr Ma.
    I find it hard to understand why he would be taking a two hour journey to fetch a wrought iron bedstead when she was leaving that morning. My instincts are screaming no way. I told her to be be very careful with whom she was dealing with in August, the last contact I had from her was before she left for that trip she told me she was going to confront him with a number of issues, she was supposed to pick me up from HK airport , but she never came back, Jai picked me up

    She was a wondereful friend, so full of life – but I am a great beleiver in Karma, what goes around – comes around – npbody gets away with anything – sooner or later….something will come to light
