A fishing boat crew member was abducted by three suspected extortionists off Bolong last Wednesday afternoon.

Police identified the crew man as Bong-Bong Sabado, 40, married, a native of Quezon City.

A police report disclosed that Sabado with six other fishermen were aboard a fishing boat on fishing venture when three extortionists aboard a pumpboat appeared and took Sabado.

The abductors handed a note to Sabado’s companions wherein a cell phone number was written and told them to give it to their employer for the latter to call or text to  negotiate for the release of the captive

However when the abductors holding Sabado left the place, the six fishing boat crew found out the cell phone number given lacks one digit and can’t be used.

Sabado was missing for several hours prompting his companions to report the incident to the Sangali Police Station.

Men of the Sangali Police Station led by Sr. Insp. Joel Tuttuh launched follow-up operations for the possible recovery of Sabado.

It was learned that the abductors were demanding money from Sabado’s employer. – Dan Toribio Jr.
