Police in Arkansas are searching for a man who might be missing after posting to Facebook on Tuesday that he was “[just] kidnapped.”
Helena-West Helena Police Chief James Mayfield told Fox 24 that he isn’t sure if the Facebook post from Fredrick Gamble, 26, is legitimate, and said that his department is investigating the possible kidnapping.
He added that Gamble’s mother reported Fredrick missing on Tuesday morning, then the police department saw the post on Facebook.
Gamble said in a Tuesday morning Facebook post that he was in the “back of a gray van” and that “these guys pulled guns on me & forced me inside.”
