44-year-old son of Marcos lawyer missing

Police in Quezon City are now looking for the son of prominent lawyer Oliver Lozano who has been missing for four days already and is believed to have been abducted, a television report said Sunday.

According to Ruth Cabal’s exclusive report in “24 Oras," Emerson Lozano, 44, left their house in a subdivision along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City last Wednesday to meet with a prospective buyer of his vehicle.

A radio dzBB report said Emerson’s driver Hernani Sensil, 34, was with him when he went missing. Sensil’s charred body was recovered in La Paz town in Tarlac province last Thursday.

It said Emerson’s wife filed a missing persons report after her husband and Sensil failed to get home after a meeting at a gasoline station Wednesday night. She said the two met with an unidentified prospective buyer of the younger Lozano's Kia van (QAE-333).

Nahihirapan ako lalo na pag nakikita ko yung mga anak kong iyak ng iyak (It’s difficult especially when I see my children crying)," Emerson’s wife emotionally told Cabal in an interview.

The elder Lozano said they are hoping nothing bad had happened to Emerson.

Wala kaming accusation, wala kaming premature speculation (We’ve no accusation, premature speculation). We’ll just let the law takes its course, let the investigation be conducted," he said in the “24 Oras" report.

“My family and I therefore fervently pray to God Almighty with abiding faith that there will be successful rescue operations," added Lozano, the legal counsel of the late President Ferdinand Marcos and an unsuccessful senatorial bet in the 2004 and 2007 elections.

The police said they are still treating Emerson as a missing person. A review of the CCTV in the gasoline station reportedly belies suspicions that Emerson was abducted, as there were no commotions seen. - KBK, GMANews.TV
