She posted a picture of her brother and the details of where he was last seen.

He got on the bus again at around 7 p.m. at Gwanak Station in Seoul.
If anyone nearby sees him, I would appreciate it if you could report it…

I have a brother with a level one intellectual disability.
He has the intelligence of a 3-4-year-old child… but today at 2 p.m., he went missing around 2 p.m. today at a bus stop, and we haven’t found him yet.

He has epilepsy and is not good at walking, so tonight may be very dangerous. So if you’re around Suwon (there’s a high probability of him being here), Hwaseong (Dongtan), Osan, or around there, please let us know.

He also has a habit of continuously taking buses, so he could be further away. Because it’s rush hour, I feel like he might be on a bus…

If anyone sees him, please let me know…

Moon Ji In’s post spread throughout online communities and news outlets, and even people claimed to have witnessed her brother.

Fortunately, Moon Ji In announced four hours after posting the message that she had found her brother. She thanked everybody and revealed her brother was found safe and sound. At first, she gave an update that he was found to ease netizens’ worries and stated that she would “provide more details later.” Later, she edited the post, adding more details.

My younger sibling has safely returned home after about 9 hours, with the help of many people. With epilepsy, it was extremely dangerous to go through the night, but unbelievably, just before midnight, we were able to meet them in good health.

She explained how her brother got lost, sharing that it was unanticipated. She apologized and said it won’t happen again.

To briefly explain the situation, my sibling was waiting for the bus with my parents at the bus stop, then in the brief moment [my parent’s] bell rang and they looked for their phone, he boarded the bus. He has been taking the same bus for five years, so it seems they didn’t anticipate this. We will take better precautions to ensure that such incidents do not happen again. Our family was lacking, and I am truly sorry and grateful.

The actress also thanked everyone who took part in helping her find her brother.

I have incurred an unimaginable debt of love. Many of my acquaintances, numerous tips from citizens, the help of journalists who covered the case, and the efforts of the missing person’s team and the police all played a crucial role in finding my sibling.

In response to the post, comments of relief were left by various individuals, including actress Choi Yoon Young, Seol In Ah, Son Min Soo, and more.

It’s a relief, really ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ
