Rocha, according to her mother Jocelyn, failed to return to their home at Paradijon, Gubat, Sorsogon. after leaving for class on August 12.

She was last spotted between 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. of August 12 in front of Savemore, Magsaysay St., Brgy Sulucan, Sorsogon City by a friend.

Upon receiving the report, elements of the Gubat Municipal Police Station and the Sorsogon City Police Station coordinated with the management of said business establishment to review the CCTV footage for clues on Rocha's whereabouts. Said footage, however, yielded no such information.

They proceeded to the residence of a certain John Jacob, who was identified as Rocha's boyfriend.
Jacob, the police said, was previously seen fetching Rocha at her school before she was reported missing. The residence, however, was closed, and no one could provide information on where its occupants were, the same police report indicated.

Over the weekend, rumors that Rocha had been found circulated on social media, but all had been found to be untrue.

As of this morning, a follow-up operation is still being conducted by the Sorsogon City Police Station and Gubat Municipal Police Station. —BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot. Pirming bago. With report from Edgar Tumangan/WowSmile
