Police announced the arrests of Samuel Wayne Bolling, 38, of Nashville, Tennessee, and Dayla Diane Ferrer, 19, of Memphis, Tennessee, in connection to a missing persons case.

On April 19, police in Hot Springs, Arkansas found Trynytee Case, 17, a little before 2:30 p.m. at 4737 Central Avenue with minor injuries. She had been reported missing after a co-worker notified the girl's mother after they couldn't get a hold of her, Fox 13 reports.

Case was kidnapped after work, according to the TV station.


The mother then tried several times to call her daughter's phone before Case finally answered and said "Everything is fine." After, what sounded like a man's voice took the phone and police say the couple demanded $10,000 in exchange for returning Case — or else they would kill her and cut up her body, according to Fox 13.
