MANILA, Philippines — Troops of the 401st Infantry Battalion are tracking down New People’s Army guerrillas who allegedly abducted a small mine operator in Bayugan City, Agusan Del Sur Saturday.

Gacayan, quoting unnamed sources, claimed the rebels were demanding ransom from the family of Gacayan, who the Army officer said suffers from hypertension.
