I chanced upon http://www.helpfindallen.blogspot.com/ on Pinoy Exchange last Saturday, February 13, 2010. I checked the updates this morning and I’m disappointed and saddened that this young man is still missing for reasons that even his family could not decipher.
How could a sensitive young man just disappear without apparent trace? Nobody seemed to see him on the night that he disappeared; not a taxi driver, not a co-worker, not a police officer, not a stranger. According to his close friends, it is very un-Allen if he would just run away without informing his family or rather if he would put his family into deep worries. His mom has heart problems; a good son won’t bring troubles to his ailing parent.
I talked about Allen (who’s so much of a stranger to me) with my husband last night. Something about his disappearance just keeps bugging me. Are we safe in our daily route to and from work or school? Can we trust the people around us?
Allen and I are total strangers from each other and we don’t live on the same neighborhood. The least that I can do is to spread http://www.helpfindallen.blogspot.com/ so that people may be aware that Allen is missing.
