ABDUCTED!!! 3 Year old boy needs your help and prayers!

As I was playing with my 8 and 5 year old sons this evening, a news item in TV Patrol caught my attention because of 3 things:

First, the news item was about a kidnapping of a three year old boy. Second, the abduction happened inside a mall. And third, it happened within my district and the victim is a constituent of mine.

As a father of four boys aged 17, 8, 5 and 2, I could immediately feel the trauma of the parents, a feeling that I never would like to experience.

Later in the evening, as I was checking messages and the posts in my multiply account, I came across a post about the abduction and again, the thought of a three year old boy in the company of strangers just wrenched my heart.

I would like to post the message of the boy's aunt, which might enable someone to help track him down.

"My pamangkin, Kuya Ken's son Matthew, where we took the other half of the business namesake was abducted last night at Festival Mall in Alabang.

Name: Matthew" Chu-chu" David Samudio
Age: 3 Years Old, Can barely speak straight.
Address: 16 guyabano st umali rd. summitville subdivision putatan muntinlupa city 1770

He was last seen at Tom's World Arcade in Festival Mall Alabang, around 8pm yesterday July 22, 2008 wearing Green Checkered Polo, Maong pants and Green Mr. Bean Slippers.

When we reviewed the surveillance camera in said mall, there was this chubby impoverished looking girl around 12-13 years old wearing a dirtied pink top with floral design and a reddish jogging pants who summoned my nephew and then whispered something to him, then my pamangkin who is very "bibo" readily took her hand as they went out of the said premises.

Guys, I need your help with this, if you know people in the media, police or government agency who might be able to HELP us locate my nephew, I'm begging you, please, please help us. Or at the very least, please pass this message to as many people as possible, who knows where the abductors might have taken him... Matthew is a very sickly kid, he rarely eats unless his yaya feeds him and he was about to have an operation for fluid in his right testis.

If there are any news or lead that can locate my nephew, please help us... Sobrang kawawa ang pamangkin ko, who knows how they are treating him...I dont want this thing happening to any kid so please help my nephew. PLEASE. You can contact my brother at 0923-638-4632.

Thank you so much and God Bless you!",

If they got the tape of the surveillance camera, how come they did not post a video or a picture of the said chubby impoverished looking girl.

It might help...

Sir, this is Ken Samudio, Thank you so much for the support, Matthew is safe at last, he was found in a market in Sta. Rosa Laguna, reports said that he was found 7:30 in the morning almost falling asleep while begging for food and money. He was very very dirty and unkept. But he is well and with us. Thanks to God and thanks to you sir!

It was a gut reaction on my part. I'm a father of four sons, aged 2, 5, 8 and 17. I can relate to how you must have felt when Matthew was missing.

I'm glad he is reunited with you again, unharmed.

God bless you and your entire family.
