MANILA (UPDATED) -- Police found the body of a senior account manager of advertising agency McCann Worldgroup Philippines, Inc. who had been missing since Friday night.

The body of 25-year-old Kristelle Davantes was found at the Tibagan Bridge in Barangay Sabutan, Silang, Cavite at around 6 a.m. on Saturday.

Her mouth was covered with a handkerchief, while her hands were tied with a seatbelt. She had several wounds on her neck.

Near her body were a knife and a wire believed to have been used to kill her.

Cavite Philippine National Police’s SPO2 Deogenes Zonio said: “Maaaring 'yung wire din ginamit to strangulate.”

Davantes was last seen at the Bonifacio Global City driving a Toyota Altis. The car is still missing.

According to the media and marketing website Mumbrella.com, Davantes worked for a little over two years at McCann’s digital offering MRM, having joined the agency in September 2011.

The website also said she attended De La Salle University where she graduated with a Master’s degree in marketing communications. -- from a report by Nevi Calma, ABS-CBN News Cavite
