On Tuesday, Louisiana authorities rescued a mother who was being held against her will. Officials were able to track the mother because her 11-year-old daughter brought a hostage note to school, reported WBRZ.
The unidentified child went to school with a note her mother had written, detailing the situation. In the letter, the unnamed woman alleged she was being held hostage and asked for someone to call police. School officials called the sheriff's office when they read the note, said East Feliciana Parish Sheriff Jeff Travis
A law enforcement team — along with the child — then tracked down the mother’s location. She was found off Folly Brown Road, in a rural area of the parish. When deputies went inside, a man identified as Donald Ray Guy (pictured above) was hiding in a closet, said officials.
Guy was arrested on site.
Guy has a history of violence and was previously facing domestic abuse and battery charges in East Feliciana Parish. He also had two additional warrants for missing court dates. Deputies in East Baton Rouge Parish placed a hold on Guy, who’s linked to a car theft there.
When investigators found the woman, they also recovered two ATV’s from the home — one of which was reported stolen.
Neither the woman nor the child were injured.
