A international student, who had been missing for more than a week, was found Tuesday night living with another man in a dirty trailer on the Malahat.

Saanich police detectives found Roberto Coronado, 25, after eight days of searching for the Filipino man.

“It’s a good thing someone reported him missing when they did,” said Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “We can describe this trailer as some very unsanitary type conditions. There were concerns for his medical wellbeing.”

Coronado was reported missing on Feb. 7, after family members in Washington State were concerned about his out-of-character lack of communication.

When police began investigating, they found that Coronado moved out of his last-known residence in Novembe. He also wasn’t registered at the post-secondary institution his family believed he was attending.

“His movements have really been unaccounted for (over) the last couple of months. But he’s likely been living in this trailer in unsanitary conditions for that time,” Jantzen said.

Coronado’s family from the Philippines arrived in Victoria earlier in the week, and the relatives have been reunited.

Coronado is expected to remain in hospital for a couple days while he undergoes a medical assessment.
