The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) set up a task force to find Investigation Agent I Merton T. Fesway, who has gone missing and is believed to be a victim of abduction.

PDEA Director General Wilkins M Villanueva signed an Agency Order creating “Task Force Fesway”- a 24-man intelligence and investigation team, to expedite the search for the missing anti-drug operative.

Fesway, a 38-year-old native of Samoki, Bontoc, Mountain Province, is assigned at the PDEA Regional Office III Pampanga Provincial Office in Angeles, Pampanga. He reportedly went missing since the evening of June 25, 2021.

Based on the initial investigation, Fesway was supposed to meet a confidential informant prior to his sudden disappearance.

“Hindi kami titigil sa paghahanap hanggang matagpuan namin si Fesway. Umaasa kami na siya ay ligtas at nasa mabuting kalagayan,” Villanueva said.
