Hostage Situation Under Investigation

January 15th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

WCBC News has learned of a situation which involved an area man being allegedly held against his will, only to be found walking along Route 36 in the Corriganville area after an intense police investigation. On Tuesday afternoon at 3:20, The Cumberland Police Department was contacted by a female, who advised that her son was being held against his will somewhere in the Cumberland area.  Police were able to contact the victim via his cell phone, and he confirmed that he was being held against his will at an unknown location. The victim was found by an Allegany County Deputy Sheriff, saying that he had escaped from his captors.  However, as the matter remains under investigation, the victim is apparently refusing to cooperate with authorities, including refusing to show where he escaped from. Maryland State Police also participated in the investigation, which is now being headed up by C3I. WCBC has contacted C3I for further information and will follow the story today.
