The wife of Camarines Norte Gov. Edgardo Tallado, who had been reported missing since Friday last week, surfaced on Wednesday and revealed she had left their home because of fear that her husband might kill her.

According to media interview, Josefina Tallado acknowledged that she was NOT kidnapped in Lupi, Camarines Sur last Friday.

She stated:

“Hindi po ako nawawala at hindi ako nakidnap. Kusa akong umalis at kusa akong tumakas dahil alam kong hindi na ako safe sa sarili kong tahanan.”

Mrs. Tallado also revealed she had long known about her husband’s infidelity but had endured it.

Last week, Mrs. Tallado was accused by her husband about posting a naked picture of his mistress on social media platform site Facebook. During the confrontation, she said her husband was hiding a gun tucked behind him.

“Ang nangyari po nun nung Miyerkules na kinonfront niya ako, may baril po akong nakita sa likuran niya.
Yun yung alam kong anytime baka patayin niya ako,” she said.

“Noon ko lang nakita ang ganung mukha at ganung galit sa kanyang mukha,” she added.

She said she was also shocked when an unknown person came to her bedroom last week.

In the television interview on Wednesday, Mrs. Tallado, 43, divulged ‎that her husband got mad at her when she discovered the “sex video” of him and his 28-year-old mistress and accused her of uploading the footage online.

After the ‎discovery, Mrs. Tallado’s lawyer Lorna Kapunan said the governor confiscated all of Josie’s gadgets and cut off all her communication lines that was why she ran away “for fear of her life”.

In a latest report via Inquirer, It was last Friday when Josie escaped with her friend Darlene Francisco and left the black Toyota Fortuner they were riding ‎in at Napolidan, Lupi town in Camarines Sur province.

They took a motorcycle ride to Naga City, also in Camarines Sur, and traveled for two hours.

“They checked in to a motel. They thought their whereabouts would be traced if they took an airplane,” Kapunan said in Filipino.

In Naga City, ‎Josie bought a second-hand car, which she used to drive to Metro Manila.

The Camarines Norte governor broke into tears Monday in a press conference during the announcement of the creation of “Task Force Josie” led by the Camarines Norte Police in search of his wife and Francisco.
