    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     RonCharity and his wife Charity are overjoyed to have found their loved one today. Charity’s father lives near Baybay, which is on the opposite side of Tacloban in the Philippines. They lost contact after Thursday, but were relieved when they heard he was all right this morning at 7:00am ET. “I told my wife I don’t care if their house is gone I just want them safe cause we can help them rebuild," said Johnston.
