Tecson said Police Senior Superintendent Dante Novicio, Muntinlupa chief of police, would lead the special task force, while Police Chief Inspector Ritche Salem would serve as Assistant Commander for Intel.
Ica was last seen at a coffee shop in a mall on East Service Road in Sucat, Muntinlupa at 10:53 p.m. on Thursday.
