A 19 year old Tennessee A woman linked to the Trynytee Case kidnapping is allegedly operating an online babysitting profile which may have been for the purpose of gaining access to other children.
Dayla Ferrer has been charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, first degree assault and first degree forcible confinement. Samuel Bolling Jr., a 38-year-old man from Arkansas, was also arrested after being linked to the case and facing the same charges.
Trynytee Case was found safe and sound after being kidnapped by Dayla Ferrer and Samuel Bolling Jr.
The case was reported missing Monday shortly after 9:15 p.m. She was leaving her job at a bakery in Hot Springs with a colleague by her side. The two were reportedly approached by Ferrer, who asked Case if she could use her phone to contact family members who lived in the area.
Ferrer allegedly asked Case to move closer to his car to use the phone’s GPS. Case’s colleague left to get her car, but Case and Ferrer were gone when she returned. The co-worker called Case’s phone, but received no answer.
The colleague then called Case’s mother, who called her daughter’s phone several times. Case reportedly responded later and told her mother “everything is fine” before being cut off by a stranger’s voice.
The man demanded $10,000 from Case’s mother and threatened to kill Case and “cut her up” if she did not comply.
The call ended after the man made his demands. Authorities sent an Amber Alert Tuesday morning.
Case managed to escape and went to a nearby liquor store to call her parents around 3:20 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, family members told 4029 News in Fayetteville, Arkansas. She was then taken to hospital to treat her injuries.
Police found Ferrer and Bolling at a hotel down the street from the liquor store after locating Case. Both are being held without bail at Garland County Jail.
Dayla Ferrer advertised online for child care services.
A TikTok user with 1.1 million followers as carriejernigan1, also known as Lawyer Carrie, posted a video on Wednesday in which she found a babysitting profile believed to belong to Ferrer.
Her profile on nannylane.com, a website for parents to find babysitters, reads in part: “I love kids and they love me.”
