"Walang kidnapan po na nangyari"

Based on earlier reports, 4 girls were kidnapped, including three siblings. However, the Taguig City Police quickly confirmed that girls were not kidnapped.

They add that the girls left of their own volition and rode a jeepney. Thankfully, a good samaritan found the girls and helped them get back to their families.

They add that the three girls were found less then a day after they were reported missing, contrary to the initial report that they were missing for a few days.

The initial report by ABS-CBN said that 4 girls were kidnapped, including a 15-year-old who was texting her grandmother. However, the recent update still hasn't shed light about what happened to the 15-year-old.

While the news still isn't clear, we're just happy to know that the girls have not been kidnapped and that they're now safe with their family.
