Trynytee Case the 17-year-old teen missing from a possible kidnapping in Hot Springs was found safe Tuesday afternoon as police were still looking for the vehicle and people of interest.
17-year-old Trynytee Case was leaving work at the Pour Some Sugar on Me Bakery at around 9:15 PM on Monday night April 18. She was also walking with a co-worker to their cars when Dayla Ferrer approached them and asked to use the Trynytee's phone. Ferrer said she was lost and her parents were staying at a condo in Hot Springs.
Ferrer told the girls that she really just needed the phone to get her GPS coordinates and asked Trynytee to come closer to her vehicle. At that same time, the co-worker went to get her own car, when the coworker returned to where Trynytee was last seen she was nowhere to be found. Calls to the victim's phone were unanswered.
From the original press release issued by the Arkansas State Police on Tuesday morning:
The friend panics and calls the victims mother. The mother attempts numerous times to call the victims phone and the victim answers and states, "everything is fine", when a male voice 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 police say that Trynytee's cell phone was pinged and was last seen headed south on U.S. Highway 7 south of Hot Springs.
Luckily Trynytee was found safe and the two suspects have been caught.
