NAGA CITY–The eldest daughter of Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo on Monday morning thanked the media and supporters praying for the safety of her father, who remains missing following a plane crash on Saturday afternoon.
Jessica Mae “Aika” Robredo, 24, accompanied by her cousin Gaile Robredo, went out of their house in Bulusan Street, Dayangdang here at around 10:15 a.m. and addressed the media for around three minutes.
“Malaking tulong sa amin,” (It is of big help to us) she said, adding that after three days of search for their father, they were “realistic but hopeful” of the situation.
She said that until there is no news yet about the search and rescue, they are still asking for prayers.
“At this point, we are still hopeful,” she said.
Robredo had wanted to be in Naga City on the day of the crash because he had planned to give a “blowout” to his youngest daughter Jillian, 13, for winning the bronze medal in an international Math Olympic held recently in Singapore. He has another daughter, Patricia, 18.
