Earlier today, the Internet went wild when news broke out that a 4-month-old baby named Taylor had been taken from her home in Taguig. CCTV footage was released of the babysitter walking out of the house carrying the baby out of the house while her parents slept on Wednesday.
Various media outlets wrote about the incident with thousands of netizens sharing the story on their social media accounts with hopes of finding the suspect known to the parents as Kristine Salik. The parents asked Raffy Tulfo for help earlier this morning, as well, and we are relieved to announce that baby Taylor has finally been returned to her parents.
In the interview with Tulfo, Kristine Salik alias Minda claims that she simply took the baby out for a stroll while the parents were sleeping and then panicked when she saw the allegations of kidnapping posted on social media an hour after she took the baby out. She also says she couldn’t sleep all night because she didn’t know how to return the baby after reading the allegations.
Princess Jean Perin, the mother of Taylor, points out that the timeline doesn’t fit, though, since she didn’t post anything on social media until at least three hours after they noticed their baby was missing. She also voices out that she doesn’t understand why the nanny deactivated her Facebook account before the parents posted anything on social media.
Eric Victoriano, the father of Taylor, still wants to sue Minda for kidnapping despite her explanations, especially since they allegedly also found evidence that Minda and her husband have been claiming that Taylor is their child on their Facebook accounts. Watch the full interview here:
Although both parents are overjoyed to have found their child, they still have yet to check if baby Taylor wasn’t harmed in any way. Still, both parents are thankful to all of the netizens who helped them find their baby. We are also all relieved that baby Taylor is finally back in her parents’ arms.
