October 22, 2012 was the most devastating day for the family of Jose Ja-El Penamora Flores who was abducted by unknown kidnappers while his mother was out for a short while to enroll in school. Left with other family members at their home in Parañaque City, Philippines, the child went outside to visit an aunt at a nearby house but never came home because someone took him away.
For years, the family has been looking for him yet, to date, has never found him. Back when he was still in his family’s arms, Ja-El’s parents had promised that they would hold his 7th birthday party at Jollibee, a popular fastfood chain in the country.
So, when his 7th birthday approached, his parents decided to throw the party even if they still have not found him.
Inviting their closest friends and relatives, the Flores family hosted a bittersweet party for Ja-El, praying that wherever he was at the moment, he was in good hands and that he had something to eat.
As of the moment, there are no leads to Ja-El’s whereabouts – and all the previous tips were false leads. Still, the family continues to hope that Ja-El will be back in their arms again; the sooner, the better!
Here’s the official poster from the Facebook page dedicated for finding Ja-El:
Just contact his mother, Jona Penamora-Flores, if you have possible information they can use or as The DailyPedia recommends, if you find a child that looks like Ja-El in the streets, contact the police or bring him to the nearest police station.
