CEBU CITY – Local policemen are currently on the lookout for a black van with license plate PMQ 128, which five men, three of whom are said to be foreign nationals, purportedly used to abduct a university student in this city early Monday.

The victim, whom police refused to identify as investigation is underway, was reportedly waiting for a public utility jeepney around 5 a.m. near Sungold located close to the Cebu Eastern College (CEC) along N. Bacalso Avenue when she was kidnapped by the suspects.

The victim, who studies in one of the colleges in the city, came from her night shift duty and was on her way home to Barangay Buhisan when she was allegedly forced into the black van, said Cebu City Police Director Joel Doria.

Relatives of the victim visited the Carbon Police Station on Monday morning to report her alleged kidnapping after allegedly receiving a Facebook message from the victim telling them that she had been abducted.

“STOP FINDING THIS WOMAN OR ELSE I’LL KILL HER IF U KEEP ON CHAT AND CALLING I WILL KILL HER,” read a post on the victim’s Facebook account.

Friends appealed to whoever took her “not to hurt her” and to “bring her back (home).”    /kga

This story is from March 2017.  See any similarities ??       It also mentions a similar hoax kidnapping story from  last November also 

 

Police: Kidnap rumors not true

 (The Freeman) | Updated March 11, 2017 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines - Authorities from the cities of Lapu-Lapu and Naga have denied reports circulating on social media that there were kidnapping incidents in their communities.

Lapu-Lapu City acting vice mayor Harry Radaza and the police authorities denied reports that two children were abducted in Maribago.

"Wala gyud ta'y kidnapping incident dinhi sa Lapu-Lapu City," Radaza said.

Naga City Police Chief Gregorio Galsim also denied a similar abduction claim in their city.

A social media post about the alleged kidnapping case in Barangay Maribago had caused alarm among the Oponganons.

In that post, the public was warned that two children were kidnapped by men on board a van.

Freeman ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch:

But, in an official Facebook page of Lapu-Lapu City Police-Public Community Relations Office, the police said the rumor on the alleged abduction incident was not true.

"This is to inform everyone about the Alleged Kidnapping Case in Brgy. Maribago, Lapu-Lapu City which is now spreading on social media and had alarmed the Oponganons - IT'S NOT TRUE," read the police’s message.

"We advice the public to stop spreading this post and better be vigilant. We assure everyone that Lapu-Lapu City is safe for all, particularly our children. Your Lapu-Lapu City PNP will continue to respond to any concern especially with regards to peace and order," it added.

Last November, a woman also announced on a social networking site that a kidnapping happened in Barangay Tabok, Mandaue City.

She later recanted and publicly apologized through her Facebook account.

The girl said the kidnapping incident was a hoax. In her post, she alleged that there were witnesses of the incident that two women were standing in front of the Toyota showroom when a van arrived and the kidnappers were armed and several women were already inside the van.

In Naga City, Galsim urges their constituents to stop posting unverified kidnapping incidents on social media which can cause alarm and panic to residents.

He added that they traced the Facebook user and told her to visit their station to formally report the “incident.”

However, during yesterday’s interrogation, the police found out that the information was not true, adding that the person who posted it only relied on hearsay.

Galsim clarified that there is no victim of kidnapping incident in the city.

“Wala pa gyu'y nag-report diri nga tinuod, wala man pud ta gahandom. Amo naman gi-monitor kung kinsa gyud ang biktima unya wala gyu’y ni-report formally diri nga naay kidnap. Puro raman according to. Puro raman haka-haka,” he said.

He advised the social media user to apologize to the public and post a clarification statement on her Facebook account that the information she posted was not true.

He also advised residents that if ever there are suspicious persons they believed to be kidnappers, they must immediately report them to the police and avoid posting any report to social media accounts that will scare constituents.

“Do not immediately post in FB account if you heard something, you should verify first and know if it is really true,” Galsim stressed. — Garry B. Lao, Iris Mariani B. Algabre (FREEMAN)

POLICE will file charges against the 21-year-old college student who allegedly made up a story that she was abducted by three foreigners and two locals on Monday morning, January 8, on Leon Kilat St. in Cebu City. Chief Inspector Jacinto Mandal, Carbon Police Station commander, said neither abduction nor kidnapping happened. No bruises and wounds were found in the student's body.

The black van with license plate PMQ-128 used by the fictional abductors is registered in Metro Manila. Mandal said they will consult the legal officers of Cebu City Police Office on what specific complaints they could file against the woman, an education major. The charges will be filed against the woman as a reminder to the public not to make up false stories. He said they are not detaining the woman, who was turned over to her family who is from Hilongos, Leyte, after she was found at 8:20 p.m. Monday, January 8, in Sitio Pamutungan, Barangay Jubay, Liloan, Cebu.

Nenita Wagas found the woman, whose wrists were tied up with a cord of a cellphone charger, in the vicinity in Pamutungan. The student admitted she lost the P4,000 cash entrusted to her by a college dean. The money was proceeds of books sold to students. She claimed the money was gone after she kept it in a locker in the school.

The student told the police she was pressured by the dean to produce the money. Mandal said the student apologized to the police and her family. He said that classmates described the woman as loner, who seldom talks with them. Mandal suggested to the family to let the student undergo counseling and psychiatric evaluation. (KAL/SunStar Cebu)

Pursuit ongoing for 3 foreigners over ‘kidnapping’ Tuesday, January 09, 2018 THREE unidentified foreigners and two Filipinos allegedly abducted a 21-year-old college student on Leon Kilat St., Cebu City yesterday morning.

Chief Insp. Jacinto Mandal, chief of the Carbon Police Station, said they are tracking down a black van with plate number 128 PMQ, believed to have been used to abduct the woman (name withheld).  “Two of the foreigners have dark complexion, while the other one is white. There were also two Filipinos involved and who have yet to be identified based on witnesses’ accounts,” Mandal said. 

The Cebu City Police Office (CCPO) released a flash alarm to the Mobile Patrol Group (MPG) , Highway Patrol Group (HPG), and other police units for the whereabouts of the vehicle.  “At around eight in the morning, the brother of the victim personally appeared in our station to report the alleged abduction of his sister,” Mandal said.

The Carbon chief added that the victim managed to text that she was being taken to a mountainous area in Cebu City and that her feet were bound.  “She also texted that she was maltreated,” Mandal said.  He said that they already identified the owner, but has yet to verify if it was really an abduction.   “We cannot speculate,” Mandal said.  CCPO Director Senior Supt. Joel Doria said that they already coordinated with the Anti-Cybercrime Group (ACG), Regional Anti-Kidnapping Group (RAKG), Land Transportation Office (LTO), and other agencies to track down the student.  In the victim’s Facebook account, the alleged kidnappers posted a status saying that the latter shouldn’t be sought.  “STOP FINDING THIS WOMAN OR I’LL KILL HER. SHE IS MINE,” the post stated. 

Friends and relatives of the victim went on social media and asked for help in locating the victim. Their post has gone viral. However, Doria advised those online to stop chatting with the alleged abductor, for the victim’s safety.  “The police is doing their best to locate the victim. Stop chatting with the alleged abductor because it might cause more harm than not to the victim,” Doria said in Tagalog. 

The victim’s sister pleaded for the latter’s safe return and fainted while in the police station.  Her boyfriend also said that the alleged abductors were two burly Black American, a Caucasian and two Filipinos.  “She was punched when they caught her texting me. She was on her way for duty because she’s a working student,” he said. (RTF) Published in the SunStar Cebu newspaper on January 09, 2018.

it's good to see this well-worn urban myth/old wives tale getting outed for the absolute bullshit it is in an acual news article.

for as long as I've been coming to the Philippines there's been this bullshit myth floating about that these vans with foreigners  in drive around Philippines cities abducting girls  - although the girls are usually a bit younger than this, like about 14 or 15 not 18 or 19.

they abduct girls with these vans all day long, every day of the year,  they've been doing it for years, and everyone knows about it. But nobody has ever been caught.

Yeah, next thing you know one will be claiming a tall foreigner lured her onto a scooter with an ice cream cone, but gave her nothing more than a rotten onion when he finally let her go!

that's an outrageous slur. I never gave a girl an ice cream cone ever - never, not once. Although sometimes, yes, it's true I would give their boyfriends an ice cream cone while they were waiting on the motorbike outside.
