The mystery surrounding Jennylyn Mercado's sudden disappearance continues.
In the latest update received by PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) earlier this evening, the actress reportedly assured the executive producer of her afternoon drama series, Paano Ba Ang Mangarap?, through a text message that she will show up tomorrow for taping.
"Walang binigay na reason kung ano nangyari sa kanya for two days. Feeling ko, na-burn out and pressured sa work and sa concert," theorized Calvin Neria, who is acting as both director and public relations point man for Jennylyn's upcoming concert at the Music Museum on May 14.
MANAGER STILL CLUELESS. Jennylyn, in less than 24 hours, had stood up three important commitments, which were all intended to help promote her solo concert titled I Am Woman.
She was supposed to guest yesterday, May 9, on Startalk before proceeding to Max's restaurant on Scout Rallos, Quezon City, to grace a mini-press conference for her concert. The invited entertainment reporters, however, were greeted by the actress-singer's manager, Becky Aguila, who informed everyone that her ward was missing and untraceable since mid-afternoon.
"Hindi niya usually ginagawa ang hindi sumagot sa call or nagre-reply. May mga instance na hindi siya nagre-reply agad, pero hindi ganito katagal. I'd like to think na may aberyang nangyari. Ayokong mag-isip ng kung anu-ano," said Becky.
Jennylyn likewise failed to appear today, May 10, on GMA-7's Sunday noontime musical variety show, SOP.
Jennylyn and Becky, according to Calvin, have yet to talk about the incident.
"Tita Becky sent her apologies to Startalk and SOP for the absence of Jen, pero di pa rin niya alam ang dahilan ng pagkawala ni Jen," added Calvin.
