Sakai’s son found safe in Tokyo
The whereabouts of Noriko Sakai (38) remain unknown, but at least her 10-year-old son was found safe on Thursday night. The boy was left in the care of one of Sakai’s friends in Tokyo. He is said to be in good health.
Sakai and her son had both been missing since Monday, when Sakai’s husband Yuichi Takaso (41) was arrested for drug possession on a street in Shibuya. At the time of Takaso’s arrest, Sakai was reportedly nearby in a parked car, but she has been unreachable after that.
