ABILENE, Texas -

There's good news for a woman in the Big Country whose family was previously unaccounted for in the Philippines.

Justine Benz hadn't been able to contact her uncle, Thomas Malick, and his family after the super typhoon hit the islands.

According to Benz, a Facebook post from a neighbor of the Malick's indicated the family was okay. The neighbor witnessed Malick's children playing in the front yard and noted their house was in good condition.

There are still many unaccounted for in the Philippines and relief efforts continue.
