Lazatin to reward P100K for the safe return of missing child ‘Ally’

ANGELES CITY—The City Government here under the leadership of Mayor “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. is set to confer a P100,000 reward on Monday, March 25, 2024 to the couple who ensured the safe return of the missing 5-year-old ‘Ally’. 
 The reward in cash will serve as a token of gratitude for the invaluable assistance of Janette Escalona and Allan Escalona in locating the whereabouts of Ally. 
 “We are immensely grateful for the couple in aiding us in resolving this incident,” Lazatin said. 
 Mayor Lazatin also invited the parents of Ally to witness the bestowal of reward to the Escalonas.  
“This token shall underscore the importance of community involvement in ensuring the safety and well-being of Angeleños,” Lazatin added. 
 According to the social media post of Ally’s cousin, Jessica Audrey Campos, it is very fortunate that the Escalona couple recognized Ally. 
 “Apparently, she [Ally] was brought by her abductor to Novaliches and was made to beg for money and food,” Campos wrote. 
 Ally was reported missing on March 17, 2024 after an unidentified man allegedly abducted her. 
 This prompted Mayor Lazatin to order the Angeles City Police Office (ACPO) to conduct a massive search and rescue operation. 
 Meanwhile, ACPO ensured to continue investigating Ally’s abduction per Lazatin’s order.
