The police have been looking for a man in the coastal region who allegedly kidnapped his ex-girlfriend Wednesday morning, from her grandmother’s home in Brunswic only to let her go hours later.
The man who has been identifying as William Bolin has a history of domestic violence and initially feared that ex-girlfriend Katy Morine was in danger. But by 4 p.m., they announced she was found safe, according to the Glynn County Police.
According to the police, Bolin “is not currently facing charges in regards to the kidnapping incident as the investigation is ongoing” but added that there were warrants for his arrest from neighboring McIntosh County.
Morine’s grandmother, Ginny Simmons said that she heard her granddaughter screaming at about 9 a.m. She then added that she saw Bolin carrying Morine out the back door.
“She was just hollering out, ‘Granny, granny. And I couldn’t do anything. I was gonna shoot at him, but I was afraid I’d hit her,” said Simmons.
Later, she said, she reviewed her security footage and saw a person on her front porch about four hours before the kidnapping. The person in the video opens the glass door, puts their hand over the camera lens, and takes down the camera.
Morine’s mother, Katrina Bell, said that Bolin had beaten and threatened her daughter in the past.
