CITY OF MALOLOS – Bulacan Governor Daniel R. Fernando together with the Bulacan Police Provincial Office (BPPO) clarified the false information and reports circulating on social media platforms regarding the consecutive reported missing cases of young ladies between the ages of 13 to 25 in the Province of Bulacan. In a press conference organized by the Provincial Public Affairs office at the Balagtas Hall, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center here this afternoon, Fernando shared his immediate directives to BPPO right after the said missing cases of young ladies went viral on social media.
“Agad-agad ay tinawagan natin at inalarma natin ang ating PNP at nagbigay tayo ng direktiba na ito ay imbestigahan kung ano ba ang dahilan kung bakit nagkaroon ng mga missing na naka-post sa social media. Wala pang 48 hours ay agad na nagbigay ng report about sa investigation hanggang sa nagkaroon na ng mga reaction sa social media na hindi naman dapat; hindi maganda ang mga nangyayari doon sa social media dahil nagkaroon ng takot ang mga Bulakenyo. To clarify, ang cause po ng mga missing report natin ay hindi katulad noong sa namatay, iba ang dahilan at huwag ito i-relate doon,” Fernando explained.
According to acting Bulacan Provincial Director PCol. Charlie A. Cabradilla, based on their investigations, majority of the reported cases were due to domestic issues and not because of syndicate groups who allegedly abduct young ladies including a case wherein one of the missing minor was found at The Fort, Taguig last April 28 due to mental depression and was confirmed to have been returned to her home; another case involves a minor who failed to inform her parents about their group outing and was assumed missing then returned to their home after a few days; while the latest report involves a minor with domestic issue with her parents who also returned to her family today after communicating with her friends.
“We like to inform the public na wala po tayong ni-isang incident na sinasabing mayroong sort of criminal or group na dumudukot sa mga kabataang kababaihan for any reason. Ito po ay napatunayan natin at na-verify natin na wala pong katotohanan ‘yung ganon. Iyan po ang gusto namin i-correct ni Governor,” Cabradilla explained.
Meanwhile, Fernando ordered the BPPO to conduct thorough investigation and to put much effort into solving the case involving the death of Princess Dianne Dayor, age 24 from Brgy. Tabang, Guiguinto, Bulacan whose cadaver was found yesterday, July 5, 2022 at an isolated swamp area between Brgy. Tikay and Brgy. Tabang while still awaiting for the autopsy result. Fernando also ordered the BPPO to conduct a meeting with the barangay captains/officials to tighten the security in every community especially at night.
“Napapansin ko na may mga barangay nang hindi nagroronda gabi-gabi. Dapat patuloy nating pasiglahin at pag-igtingin ang pagroronda para sa seguridad ng mga tao. Pati na rin ang police visibility 24 hours para mawala ang takot ng ating mga kababayan tungkol dito,” Fernando said. ###
