The wife of Camarines Norte Gov. Edgardo Tallado, who had been missing since Friday last week, surfaced on Wednesday and revealed she had left their home because she is afraid her husband might kill her.
The lawyer added that Mrs. Tallado bought a second-hand car and used it to drive to Metro Manila.
Governor Tallado reportedly organized a task force to search for his wife and Francisco.
Francisco, an IT expert, said she saw the scandal photo on Facebook, which was later removed, and made a clarification that she did not upload the private picture of the governor's alleged mistress.
