BAGUIO CITY (September 8, 2011) --  More than four dozens of young teenage girls have gone missing in Baguio, alarming parents and sending bad signals to peace and order situation in the city.
 
Baguio City police files reveal there were 56 missing young girls in a 9-month period starting January this year.
 
Sr. Inspector Kharissma Sta. Juana, spokesperson of the Baguio police said the figure includes those already found but not reported though, “lahat ng kaso ay nahanap na.”
 
Sta Juana also assured out of the 56 cases there were only two cases of missing ladies found dead.
 
“Teen Killings”
 
A spate of teen killings has been reported in the city for the past months with missing teeners reported either to the police of social networking sites.
 
Baguio police director David Lacdan admits the cases of missing minors mostly women can be traced to gang related cases, “May mga kaso na konektado sa mga gang, pero di lahat.”
 
Lacdan said the problem with the cases is that the girls apparently go with gangsters without resistance.
 
Lacdan said the gang related issues involve teeners going with friends without telling their parents.
 
Tragic deaths of two girls were found months apart here with the body of  17-year old “Irish” found dead from a bullet in a ravine below the crossing of Crystal Cave and Marcos Highway on Monday afternoon.
 
“Irish” has been missing for three months and was  dumped in a ravine after “a friend” accidentally shot her.
 
The case of another 16-year-old varsity volleyball college sophomore found August 12 at the church-run Santa Catalina Retreat House along Marcos Highway, also sent shivers to the Baguio community though police said it is not alarming at all.
 
BCPO investigation revealed on August 12, two persons were on their way towards Sto. Rosario road noticed a motorcycle heading the same direction.
 
They reportedly noticed that the back rider seemed to be unconscious because her sandals were already dragging on the road.
 
They reportedly continued walking and when they came to the unlighted portion of the road, they saw a female lying prone on the road whom they latter recognized as the one on the motorcycle that passed them. 
 
The victim showed several abrasions and blood clots on her neck, injury on her upper lip, and several abrasions on her wrist.
 
The 16 year old was reportedly raped.
 
Amidst the alleged rising incidences of such crimes in the city, police also doused insinuations about any pattern shrugging speculation of a syndicate or a serial killer on the loose.
 
Sta Juana said the cases of missing teenagers were resolved and most of the reasons logged were because of family misunderstandings.

before we all get grossed

before we all get grossed out... the police and DSWD should make a report on the actual statistics showing the number of "missing girls", those who were found vs those still missing, reasons for them going "missing" and such important data. Our leaders should know these data to be able to properly address the issue. And I would like to know--because i am a member of this community.

out of the 56 cases there

out of the 56 cases there were only two cases of missing ladies found dead.... ONLY TWO? I hope that the police department is not waiting till it gets worse! Two is very alarming and they should do something about it!!!

I was walking with my friend

I was walking with my friend and we've found that teenage volleyball player's body on the road near Roxas High School. The first thing I've thought as I've felt her neck was still warm, "Maybe she can still survive." We arrived at BGH via taxi but she was declared D.O.A. It's my first time to feel such haunting feeling of rushing a dying person to the hospital. Then now I've learned she was even raped. :-( So sad...and I feel so angry. If that rapist killer won't be caught, I'm pretty sure that God will PUNISH him 10x more than what he did!!!

I cant' believe how

I cant' believe how incompetent the police are over in that city, 56 cases not alarming? You got to be kidding me... Gang related, seriously I bet they are plainly speculating...LAME!!

police officers are found in every corner of Baguio in these days, try roaming around and count. Sad to say, not to find the killers or any suspects related to the 56 missing teenagers but to find driving violators! what the?!!!!! Is this because Christmas is coming and you need money???? Ang di paggamit ng seatbelt ang hindi alarming at all at hindi ang 56 na nawawalang bata na ang iba ay patay na!!!!!!

Even a death of single person should be noted especially if it's unnatural way. The numbers are going to add until an action is taken against this. People who are behind these incidents becomes more bold since they notice that nothing is being done about this.
