Just before the family packing their bags to go back to home Ubud on Monday Nov 16th 2020, Pablo suddenly ran away towards the jungle.

“Pablo’s family admitted that he was depressed, so I think that was the reason why he had such behaviour” Darmada said.

The SAR team received the report from the Pablo’s family on Tuesday morning at around 9:10 am that they had last seen Pablo on Monday Nov 16th in the jungle but he kept running away deeper into the jungle when they would find him.
