A foreign journalist and his two Filipino companions were reported missing in the southern part of the Philippines, a military report disclosed yesterday.
Baker Abdulla Atyani, a Jordanian National, and two others identified as Rolando Letrero and Ramelito Vela, both Filipinos, arrived at the Jolo airport last Monday (June 11, 2012).
A report received by Zamboanga Today showed that the three victims were welcomed and fetched by a Sulu-based National reporter Nikki Butlangan and brought them to Sulu State College hostel along Martirez Street, Jolo, Sulu.
The report added that on June 12, at about 5:45 a.m., a color white multicab with plate number LLC 238 arrived at the hostel to fetch the three.
According to the report, the three failed to return to the hostel which prompted the local authorities to inspect the room for any lead on their whereabouts. The personal belongings of the three were still intact inside the room but they were nowhere to be found.
The Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines in the area are still validating the information and are still considering the three as just missing.
