MANILA - One person was missing after a boat capsized in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro Friday afternoon.

The Philippine Coast Guard said a small boat carrying 9 people was crossing the river in Brgy. San Agustin when strong currents caused it to capsize.

Eight passengers were rescued, but rescue teams are still searching for Leah Mangao, 19 years old, who went missing after the accident. -- with a report from Fay Virrey, ABS-CBN News
