Alicia Jasper Lucena, 17, allegedly ran away from home and is currently missing.
Relissa Santos Lucena went on Facebook to ask for help in locating her daughter who ran away on July 10.
Apparently, Alicia joined a club in her school called the Anakbayan FEU Morayta Chapter.
“Sumali ang aking anak sa isang club sa kanilang eskwelahan noong pasukan ito ay ang Anakbayan FEU Morayta Chapter.”
Around October of last year, the family noticed that Alicia was acting peculiar. The behavior that she was showing was out of the ordinary.
Alicia took off on February 3 and came back on the 6th, without letting them know where she stayed.
“Sya po ay nag-iba ang kilos pagtungtong ng buwan ng Oktobre hanggang sa kasalukuyan, lumayas sya noong Feb 3 at bumalik noong Feb 6, hindi po sya sa aming mga relatives tumuloy.”
Relissa did not allow Alicia to go to school because she suspected that her daughter was being brainwashed.
She regretted enrolling her daughter in that institution because she thinks it’s the reason why this is all happening. She thought that the institution would give her daughter the best opportunity to pursue her dreams.
Alicia told her parents that she had a lot on her mind regarding her career.
First, she wanted to go to the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) in Baguio. Then, she changed her mind and said she wanted to take Medical Psychology. The latest one was that she wanted to become a policewoman.
When Alicia came back on February 6 after being away for 3 days, her entire demeanor changed. She said that education was not a factor and that she isn’t the daughter of her parents anymore. This was very alarming.
“Pero nagbago ang lahat. After nyang umuwi ng Feb 6, kinausap nya kami at sinabing ayaw na nyang mag-aral at iba ang kanyang kamulatan at ituring na wala na akong anak.”
Alicia joined Anakbayan when she was 16 years old but her parents did not notice this because she was a good student that cared about her future until they noticed behavioral changes at the start of October.
Alicia left for the second time on March 10 and Relissa just let her so she could observe the people surrounding her daughter. Relissa then talked to the people who recruited her daughter and said that she would go further with legal actions if they did not release her.
“Noong March 10, 2019 muli syang lumayas at doon patuloy ko lang sya muna pinabayaan habang kinikilala ko ang kanyang mga recruiter at kung saan patungo ang kanyang pinaglalaban. Natakot ako sa kanyang mga sulat at libro na nagtuturo ng armadong pakikibaka kung kaya noong May 22, kinausap ko sya at kanyang mga lider na pauwiin sya at sinabi ko na ididimanda ko sila kung hindi nila papauwiin ang aking anak.”
Relissa understands that it was Alicia’s decision to leave, but what she doesn’t understand is the reason behind it. She admits that she is not the perfect parent but she tries being the best mother she could be. Relissa is now asking for help in locating her daughter.
“alam ko na kagustuhan nya ang umalis. Pero bakit kami tatalikuran ng aking anak, sa napaka ikling panahon, Hindi ako perpekto pero hindi po ako masamang ina gusto kong humingi ng tulong na kung sino man ang makakita sa aking anak na si Alicia Jasper Lucena ay ipag bigay alam sa mga otoridad o sa akin sa lalong madaling panahon.”
Additionally, Relissa says that the Anakbayan Party List knows how to exactly exploit the youth by convincing them that they are the future.
“Naniniwala ako na ang teen stage nila ay nasa critical stage na sinamantala ng skwelahan at ng grupong Anakbayan para gamitin at ipamukha sa aking anak na sila lamang ang makakapagpabago ng lipunan. Napaka fragile pa ng kanilang isip para punuin ng galit, alam ko naman po yon kakulangan namin.”
Even with all the nasty things Alicia has said in the past, Relissa thinks deep down inside that she still loves her family.
“Masasakit ang binibitawan nyang salita sa amin pero naniniwala ako na sa kaibuturan ng kanyang puso alam ko na mahal nya kami.
“Ako po ay desperada na at humihingi ng tulong sa kung sino man ang makaktulong sa akin para maibalik ang dati kong anak,” she added.
In a previous post, Relissa opened up about the situation and the Anakbayan Party List.
“I have all the documents to prove kung paano nila kinurap ang isip ng anak ko.. Kung paano nila ginamit ang anak ko sa eleksyon na walang bayad menor de edad gagamitin mo sa kampanya ng kabataan partylist sampu ng ‘otsodiretso’ kaya ako galit sa mga ito. Lalong lalo na kay colmenares.”
She claims the party list taught her daughter to be more aggressive and to show no respect towards her parents, but she is her mom, and she knows her better than anyone.
“wala na xang family values at yan ang una nilang tinanggal sa aking anak.. Pero iba ang damdamin ng isang ina. Kahit dinurog nya ang puso ko at inapak apakan hindi ko pinakinggan yun dahil kilala ko ang anak ko mula ulo hanggang paa.”
FEU Morayta has done nothing to stop the brainwashing inside the institution, she claimed.
“Nov.13, 2018 she’s only 17 yrs old, isang uri ng child abuse, corruption of mind recruitment sa loob ng skwelahan at walang ginagawa ang mismong FEU Morayta, para labanan ang ganitong klaseng gawain.”
She then criticized the party list because of all the disturbance they have caused.
“Akala mo nagsisipagbayad na ng tax akala mo kung sinong may mga trabaho para magreklamo sa gobyerno samantalang kaming mga magulang na marunong magtimbang wala man lang reklamo sa buhay bagkus inaadjust ang buhay according sa kakayahan..”
