Apologies for the wait.I am not sure how I can help.
What you may wish to do is to contact the US Embassy
on his behalf and let them know what is happening. Any citizen held may have their consulate officer visit them. The US may not even know that he has been arrested. You may contact the US Embassy in the Philippines here
The consular officer can do little but they can
ensure that he is not being mistreated and their visit may often serve as a vehicle for the authorities to get worried if the charges are fraudulent and let him go.
If he is still not let go, an English-speaking attorney may be contacted on his behalf who can help with the matter. See here
for list of English-speaking attorneys (provided by UK).
Aside from that, there is little that you can personally do, but these two things are likely to VERY MUCH help resolve the matter.
