Chief Supt. Joel Napoleon Coronel, Central Luzon Police Regional Office chief, said on Monday that the three children were found Sunday by operatives of the Limay Municipal Police Station, together with personnel of the local government unit, in Sitio Aradia – which is near the town’s mountainous area.
