MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A teenager from the Memphis area is one of two suspects with Tennessee connections charged with kidnapping a 17-year-old girl in Hot Springs, Arkansas, police say.
Hot Springs Police said Trynytee Case, 17, was kidnapped from her job at a bakery Monday night. She was found with minor injuries following an AMBER Alert on Tuesday, and was taken to a local hospital for assessment.
There is no word on what led police to her at this time.
Police said two suspects are charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, 1st-degree battery and 1st-degree false imprisonment: Samuel Wayne Bolling, 38, of Nashville, and Dayla Diane Ferrer, 19, of Memphis. Ferrer’s arrest report also lists an address in Atoka, Tennessee.
They are being held at the Garland County Detention Center with no bond.
Police said Bolling and Ferrer were captured shortly after Case was found at a house on Central Avenue in Hot Springs, a few doors down from where the teen was found. The house was Bolling’s address, arrest records state.
There is no word on the connection between the three, but Bolling is from Hot Springs, and Dayla Ferrer lists her address as Atoka, which is about 25 miles north of Memphis.
No one answered the door at the Atoka address Wednesday.
Atoka Police said officers in Hot Springs did contact them about Ferrer and asked them to check out the address. But, they said, the family there doesn’t know Ferrer or any of those involved in this case.
Atoka Police believe if Ferrar did live there at one time, she doesn’t now. They said it’s all in the hands of Hot Springs Police.
We reached out to the Hot Springs Police Department, but did not get a response.
According to news partner KARK, investigators said Case was leaving her job with a coworker when a woman asked to use the phone. The coworker left, and when she returned, Case was nowhere to be found.
Case’s mother was able to call her daughter, and was initially told she was OK, but a male voice allegedly then came on the line and demanded $10,000 ransom or the teen would be killed.
