MANILA, Philippines–Eight armed men abducted two elementary school officials in Zamboanga del Sur, police said Tuesday.

Reports from Zamboanga police regional office (PRO 9) confirmed the abduction of Kumalarang Central Elementary School supervisors Rudy Luna and his wife Tessie last Monday night.
Around 10 p.m., police said the gunmen forced the victims to board their getaway vehicle, a Toyota Fortuner, in Barangay (village) Diplo, Kumalarang town.


The two were brought to Sitio Dacun in Barangay Picananan of the same town, according to the report.
Tessie Luna managed to escape from their captors, but her husband was unable to break free. The armed men brought him to a pump boat and they sped off.

Police said the responding policemen were able to recover the sport utility vehicle that the abductors used.


The authorities, however, have not identified yet the gunmen. They are also looking for clues on the perpetrators’ lair.
