THE Sta. Ana Police Station clarified there is no truth in the alleged kidnapping that reportedly took place in Bo. Obrero, Davao City.

This was disclosed by Police Lieutenant Colonel Ronald L. Lao after a complaint was filed by a resident in the area.

According to Lao, the Mobile Patrol J-53 arrived at the Sta. Ana Police Station 4:55 a.m. on Sunday, August 22, accompanying a 76-year-old named “Sally”, a retired teacher residing at Loyola St., Bo. Obrero, was seeking their help after she reported that her 32-year-old daughter, a resident in Matina, was allegedly abducted by an unknown individual on board a van.

According to Sally, her daughter arrived at their house and was kidnapped minutes after. The complainant identified the van’s plate number 266-949.

The Sta. Ana Police immediately conducted an investigation, and it was found out, through her eldest child, that the senior citizen has Acute Alzheimer's.

The police were also able to contact the daughter, who was allegedly kidnapped. She belied her mother’s claims.

Following the incident, the Davao City Police Office issued a statement.

"Please be informed that there was no kidnapping incident [that] happened somewhere in Obrero as posted on social media. Upon our verification and investigation, the family vehemently denied the allegation. We ask everyone to stop sharing unconfirmed reports online to avoid confusion that may affect our safety and security. Thank you," DCPO said. JPC
