“Nagahangyo gayud kami sa publiko sa inyong cooperation nga basin anaa kamoy impormasyon ug detalye bahin niining tawhana, ayaw gayud kamo pagmakuli sa paghatag sa inyohang impormasyon,” she said.

She also urged the person in the picture to cooperate with the police and head to the station.

“Kung naminaw siya or nakakita siya niining among panawagan, siya mismo pwede pud siya moanhi diri sa among opisina ug sa opisina ni Police Major Villaser. Sumala basin naa siyay posible nga mahatag nga impormasyon,” she said.

Rafter also reminded the public to take this matter seriously and avoid making prank calls as the police continue to find ways to give justice to Tocmo.

Rafter assured the public that they will continue to investigate the case of Tocmo even if her body is already laid to rest.

“Dili gyud namo liloan. Dili namo ni biyaan hangtod gyud nga mahuman namo kini nga investigation ug mahatag gyud nato ang hustisya. Unta magiyaan pud mi nga tama ang among ginasubay sa imbestigasyon,” she said.

She added that all the stations of the Cebu City police are also working along with the Labangon Police Station in conducting follow-up investigations.

According to Rafter,  they have not set a timeline for the investigation in order to ensure that it will not be rushed.
