RICHMOND COUNTY, GA (WFXG) - The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office now confirms that a possible kidnapping report was an attempt to sneak a person onto Fort Gordon.
Deputies say that around 8:42 a.m. they received a call to Jimmie Dyess Parkway in reference to a possible kidnapping.
Authorities say that a black Chrysler 300 pulled over near a Self-Storage business. At that time a black male and a black female, exited the vehicle and the female was placed in the trunk. The sheriff’s office says the male was seen getting back into the vehicle and drove off.
The two have been identified as Demetrius Ferguson and Jasmine Dailey, both of Grovetown.
Officials confirm that the woman willingly got into the trunk of the vehicle in order to get on Ft. Gordon Military Base to visit a relative in the Eisenhower Hospital. Dailey got into the trunk because she did not have a state I.D. card, which is a requirement to enter the post.
Authorities were notified immediately and at this time there does not appear to be any threats.
