FIVE unidentified armed men reportedly abducted a 52-year-old resident of Zamboanga City last weekend, according to the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).
The PCG identified the victim as Edgar Fabella who was abducted by unidentified suspects at his residence located along the highway of Barangay Maasin near the shoreline of Cawit last January 11.
According to an investigation, the PCG said Fabella was brought onboard a motorbanca described to have yellow, blue and white stripes.
The PCG added the motorbanca rushed towards Pilas Island, Basilan while the two other suspects, wearing black and orange shirts, served as look-outs who sped away onboard a black motorcycle towards the downtown area of Zamboanga City.
The PCG detachment in Recodo has alerted, through radio, all vessels anchored at the seawaters of Varadero De Cawit, Recodo and Caldera Point.
The PCG has also coordinated and informed the Philippine Navy regarding the incident for appropriate action. (Emmanuel Louis Bacani/Sunnex)
