Abducted teenager from Hot Springs released by captives - she walked to a nearby liqour store and called parents

Police in Hot Springs have arrested two people in a case that prompted an Amber Alert Tuesday, Omar Cervantes with the police department told reporters.

Samuel Wayne Bolling, Jr., 38, of Hot Springs, and Dayla Diane Ferrer, 19, of Atoka, Tennessee, were booked on charges of rape, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, false imprisonment, and battery.

Arkansas police sent out an Amber Alert Tuesday morning after a man told a missing 17-year-old girl's mother he would kill the girl without $10,000.

According to the alert from the Arkansas State Police, Trynytee Case was last seen leaving work at Pour Some Sugar on Me Bakery in downtown Hot Springs Monday at approximately 9:15 p.m.

Case, along with another female coworker, were walking to their vehicles parked a block away.

They were met by a white female (Ferrer) standing near a parked vehicle. The unknown woman asked Case if she could use her phone.

The  woman said she was lost and her parents were staying in a condo in the resort town.

The woman then said she changed her mind and would rather use the GPS coordinates on the phone and Case walked closer to the unknown woman.

During this time the friend of the victim went to get her vehicle parked in in the City of Hot Springs owned parking garage. When the friend later arrives, the victim is no where to be located.

The friend then calls the victim, with no answer. She panicked and called the victim's mother.

The mother attempted numerous times to call the victims phone and the victim answers and states, "everything is fine," when a male voice (Bolling) comes across the phone and states that they are demanding $10,000 dollars for her return or they would kill and cut up the victim.

The phone goes dead at this time and no contact has been made since. The victim's cell phone was pinged south on U.S. Highway 7 south of Hot Springs.

The alert said Case was last seen wearing a blue hoodie with a "Pour Some Sugar on Me" logo with legging style pants and white tennis shoes.  The alert also mentioned a suspect vehicle, a white Nissan Versa with Tennessee tag number 59B D82.

Family members told reporters the Case was able to escape and walked to a nearby liquor store where she called her parents at about 3:20 p.m.. She was brought to a nearby hospital and treated for her injuries.

Her father blasted the Hot Springs Police Department  on social media for claiming they found her and stated her captors actually let her go.

According to HSPD, Bolling and Ferrer were arrested at 4810 Central Ave. (Sunbay Resort)  in Hot Springs around 5:52 pm Tuesday night.


The arrest came just hours after the teen was located at a liquor store on the same street.

“My husband calls and starts screaming that we have her,” said Falshia Spoon, the teen’s grandmother.

Spoon says it was a moment full of emotion.

Video surveillance pulled from the Cash and Carry Liquor Store at 4738 Central Avenue shows the teen walking out from a nearby alley and walking into the store.


Reporters were told by liquor store employees the teen walked in and asked the cashier to call her mom.

Moments later, police and family arrive.

“I started screaming and I couldn’t drive fast enough,” said Spoon.

Spoon says the family is thankful for the work done by police to help bring the teen home. 

“They work fast, they worked hard, and they hit every tip they could find,” said Spoon.

Bolling and Ferrer were expected to appear in court Wednesday afternoon, which has been pushed back to a later date.

Posts on social media sites have shared that one of the suspects was seeking employment as a child care provider.

Three LRPD cops "relieved of duty" over incident at Club Trois

Sources at LRPD have confirmed a tip we received that three LRPD cops, Brad Stewart, Lee Pitts and Justin Sims have been "relieved of duty" in connection with an incident at Club Trois. The story we were told is that Stewart was working off-duty at Club Trois and dealt with an inebriated female club patron by soaking her with pepper spray.  LRPD General Order  ("G.O.") 303 requires that a cop that uses physical force, non-lethal control and compliance devices, on or off-duty, follow certain procedures. Use of pepper spray is a Level 4 event. Here are the specific procedures. LRPD sources tell us that they are trained to call MEMS after they use pepper spray or a taser on an individual. They are to file an incident report and they file an officer's report or letter form (5600-2) with their immediate supervisor for each use of force incident. Here's an example of an officer letter form.   Not a single procedure was followed in this incident. And to make matter

Pulaski County Department headed by State Senator Fred Love is in trouble.

By Russ Racop On July 31st we broke the story that there was an internal investigation afoot at the Pulaski County office of Community Services.   A recipient of Section 8 HVC vouchers contacted us on that same day for assistance and we began our investigation.   Her landlord contacted her and told her she had three days to get out of her apartment because she had fraudulently obtained assistance.    The landlord had been contacted by Love's staff before she had. She didn't understand what was going on because she just moved into the apartment and had been vetted and approved for assistance by Love's department. It's not the first time someone has reached out to us about Fred Love and that county department.  Love also serves in the state legislature as a Senator. We have received allegations and some records about sexual and workplace harassment, malfeasance and misuse of county resources involving Love. We immediately called the number listed on that rent payment noti
