A case of a girl who allegedly abducted by alleged organ collectors several days ago was discovered to be lying in the story that she shared on social media.
On a viral Facebook post, Lace JC shared his final conversation with the girl who’s identified as Ica Perlado, a resident of Trece Martires City in Cavite showing how the latter asked him to help her.
“Mal tulungan mo ko may sumusunod sakin na lalake pa lowbat nako nasa trece ako natatakot ako, di ko alam gagawin ko,” Perlado told her friend on messenger.
Despite being abducted as Perlado claimed, she still can use her phone and messaged her friend, saying that she’s hiding inside a wardrobe seeing other people who got captured by the unidentified group of men.
Perlado was rescued showing her wounds to prove her claim that the people who abducted her wanted to get her kidney.
The post of Lace caused an alarm to many residents of Cavite, which again sparked the ‘kidnap for organ’ rumors on social media.
However, the authorities who rescued Perlado found that the latter was lying on her story.
According to Trece Martires PNP, they discovered in a CCTV footage that Perlado went with her friends to a shopping mall, after that she went alone to Amadeo by using public transportation.
“Nagpunta sila ng waltermart para mag videoke around 3 P.M, then after non mga 5pm lumabas na sila ng walter, hinatid na siya noong dalawang classmate niya sa sakayan ng bus.” PO2 Maria Pamela De Guzman said.
“Yung sinakyan niyang jeep, palabas ng trece,” she added.
The footage belied Perlado’s claim that a group of men forcefully brought her to another place.
In the end, Perlado admitted that she only tried to leave her family for good because of personal problems.
According to her, she’s already not going to school without the knowledge of her parents.
Perlado added that she’s holding a grudge to her parents for not giving the material things that she wanted.
“Hindi lang maibigay nung mga magulang niya yung mga material na bagay na hinihingi niya, nakikita niya sa mga kaibigan niya at napapagalitan daw siya ng mga magulang niya,” De Guzman said.
She also admitted that the wounds that she showed on social media are only self-inflicted to convince the people in her story.
A journalist confirmed that the story of Perlado was made up and urged the people not to stop sharing a post that might cause panic.
“The case was considered “dropped and closed” because the victim admitted that her wounds were self-inflicted and she just made the whole story up.” she said.
As of now, Perlado went to a counseling together with her family to solve her problem.
The PNP-Trece also reminded the other netizens that no parents want something bad to happen to their children.
