A doctor was abducted by armed men inside his clinic Tuesday in Barangay Walled City, Jolo, Sulu, a top military official said.

Maj. Gen. Corleto Vinluan, commander of Joint Task Force Sulu, confirmed this information to ABS-CBN Zamboanga late Tuesday night, saying at least 4 armed abductors barged into the clinic and took Dr. Daniel Moreno at gunpoint.

Moreno is the owner of Moreno Medical Clinic and Urgent Care operating in Jolo, Sulu.

The armed men used a Tamaraw FX as their getaway vehicle that headed towards Indanan area.

Vinluan said a search and rescue operation has been launched following the incident.
