"Kung sino man ho ang dumampot ng cellphone ko, ewan ko kung may konsensya ka pa. Wala, 'cannot be reached,'" Corpuz said shortly before her dzMM program "Magandang Gabi Dok" ended its January 30 episode.

The Kapamilya reporter said she was dining at the Bagoong Club restaurant along Scout Dr. Lazcano St. in Quezon City, and she forgot her phone in the ladies room. When she returned to look for it, her phone was gone.

The restaurant management quickly reviewed the recorded CCTV video, when they were notified about the loss. It showed other female diners at the restaurant entering the ladies room after Nina left, but could not identify who took the phone.

Corpuz expressed dismay, as the contents of the mobile phone include personal as well as work-related information.

"Nandoon 'yung mga pictures ng anak ko ho, [kaya] nakakaiyak. Ang mga pictures po ng aking kaisa-isang anak, na sa cellphone ko ang mga video niya. Ang mga sources ko sa trabaho, nandoon ho lahat sa cellphone na 'yun," she said.

The dzMM anchor thanked the management of the restaurant for trying to help find her mobile phone.
