MASBATE CITY, Philippines – A pillow used by Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo was dropped at the site where his plane went down in the hope that it will help in finding him.
This was in accordance to folk belief that if a pillow used by the missing person is dropped in a place where he disappeared, he will resurface, said Naga City Councilor Elizabeth Labadia.
Labadia, who was with the group from Robredo’s hometown that flew to Masbate City this Sunday morning, brought along the pillow with her.
But it was Robredo’s aide, Paul Cabug, who dropped the pillow at the crash site at around 10 a.m.
Labadia said the pillow was given to her by Robredo’s wife, Maria Leonor or “Leni,” who opted to stay in their family home in Naga City with their three young daughters and other family members and close friends to wait for news about her missing husband.
