Deputies Investigating Attempted Kidnapping in Bollinger County

The Bollinger County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an attempted kidnapping of a 10-year-old girl from a home near Highway M on Tuesday afternoon, March 9. Parents of the girl called 911 shortly after 4:45 p.m. to report that she had gone missing.
