17-year-old Ica Policarpio, found in Laguna, unharmed

MANILA, Philippines — The National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) sees no indication of abduction in the case of 17-year old Ica Policarpio who recently went missing, and was found over the weekend in Laguna.

Ica is the teenager who reportedly went missing in Muntinlupa City last Thursday.

A concerned citizen reportedly found her sitting at a burger kiosk in the village of 2B San Pablo in the province of Laguna.

According to NCRPO chief Oscar Albayalde, there is a possibility that someone influenced the teenager to run away from her family.

“What we are looking at is whether someone urged the teenager to run away. But on kidnapping, as I said, there is no indication,” said Albayalde.

The NCRPO chief made the statement after, Atty. Rufino Policarpio, the father of the 17-year old admitted he confronted his daughter regarding a certain matter before she went missing.

“I feel it may have been because we had had a parent-child discussion. It could be possible,” said Atty. Policarpio.

Based on the CCTV footage from a coffee shop where Ica was last seen, the teenager had no company.

Because of this, the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will continue to investigate the matter.

The Policarpio family has expressed gratitude to those who helped in the search to find their daughter. — Joan Nano| UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — It took the Philippine National Police (PNP) Responders four seasons in the league of public servants before finally taking home the championship title in Season 5.

However, the cops failed to defend the title last season, when the Senate Defenders ousted them in the quarterfinals.

At the UNTV Cup Executive Face-off last year, the AFP Cavaliers beat the PNP executive roster in an overtime game.

This time around, the Responders is prepping up a new and stronger lineup to once again win a ticket to the finals of the UNTV Cup Season 7.

On Thursday, the PNP Responders themselves kicked off a basketball competition within the police institution, from which their new players for the next season and the off-season games will be selected.

Hoopster cops from the Manila Police District (MPD), Southern Police District (SPD), Eastern Police District (EPD), Quezon City Police District (QCPD), Northern Police District (NPD) and the national headquarters are among the participants.

The UNTV Cup Executive Face-Off kicks off in may where colonels and generals of the police force will step and battle on the UNTV Cup hardcourt.

“Hopefully we will be able to get [players] with ‘fightiness’ and the most powerful,” said PNP Directorate for Operations PDir. Camilo Cascolan.

“Sana makagawa din kami ng sariling team sa NCRPO, payagan tayo ni Kuya Daniel,” said NCRPO chief PDir. Oscar Albayalde.

(We hope we can also establish our own team in the NCRPO if Kuya Daniel permits.)

Meanwhile, the two-time most valuable player of the league, reveals the team’s main goal for the coming season.

“Kasi nawala kami sa Final 4. Gusto naming maging competitive. Gusto naming makabawi at gusto naming andon kami sa Top 4. Yun ang pinakagoal namin,” said PNP Responder forward Ollan Omiping.

(We were not able to make it to the Final 4. We want to be competitive. We want to bounce back. We want to be in the Top 4. That is our main goal.”

The PNP Responders won P4-million after lifting the championship trophy in Season 5, all for their chosen beneficiaries. — Victor Cosare | UNTV News & Rescue

MANILA, Philippines — Philippine National Police (PNP), National Capital Region Police (NCRPO) chief PDir. Oscar Albayalde has confirmed that several police officers and employees of the government have been going to casinos.

Abayalde said they will not hesitate to arrest them once they are caught in the act.

“Kung talagang may papasok, zero tolerance tayo dito. Ito ay kautusan ng ating pangulo at iimplement natin ito strictly,” said Albayalde.

(If any of our men will enter [a casino] there will be zero tolerance for them. It is a directive from the president and we will strictly implement it.)

This stems from the arrest of Supt. Adrian Antonio who is now in the custody of the PNP Southern Police District.

Antonio is the police caught gambling at a casino in Parañaque City.

PNP Directorate for Operations PDir. Camilo Cascolan was shocked that the said police official became addicted to gambling.

“Sana mabago natin o marehab natin si Adrian. At the same time, we do not condemn him. It’s just happened that he made the risk going to the casino. It’s a PRRD directive and we are very strict about that,” said the police officer.

(I hope we could change Adrian or put him in rehab. At the same time, we do not condemn him. It’s just happened that he made the risk going to the casino. It’s a PRRD directive and we are very strict about that.)

Antonio is also expected to be placed under lifestyle check.

Albayalde said Antonio is now facing charges.

“He is under the custody of the Southern Police District. He is now facing a case for violating Article 231 of the Revised Penal Code and the ethical standard of the Government Employees Code of Conduct and violation of Memorandum No. 6 coming from the president,” said Albayalde.

It can be recalled that last January, the PNP and Pagcor placed signage telling cops and government workers are not allowed inside casinos. — Lea Ylagan | UNTV News & Rescue
