On December 23, Bombo Radyo Baguio shared a public service on its Facebook page informing the public about a missing P14,000 cash and 10 dollars of a specific Candido Baniaga.

Mr. Baniaga is an old farmer from Madaymen in Kibungan, Benguet. He is the recognized death aid collector, a collector of donations or contributions for the dead in the village.

"This old man is a collector of death aids. He travels daily to collect but accidentally loses the money he has collected. Fourteen thousand pesos (14K) and 10 pieces of dollars and a list of credits today ... if you can find it please let us know ..., " Jayson Pascual Tulabis of Benguet reported on Monday, December 23, about Baniaga's condition at a local radio station.

Tulabis said Baniaga went to their local church to ask for prayers because he had lost the money collected. It's at P14,000 and $ 10.

On December 24, Christmas Eve, it was reported that the money had been found by another resident of Madaymen and returned to Baniaga.

“Awan surok ken kurang na,” (No more, no less.) Tulabis said.
