Investigation showed that at about 10 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, Rojo and Villalon were at the seawall in Purok Tuhaw when four men approached them.

“Witnesses said that there was no commotion and both Rojo and Villalon voluntarily went with the men,” Sarona said, as he stressed that they could not determine yet if there was really an abduction or whether the suspects were armed.
