    His family says Rick West was kidnapped by a man he knew around 10:30 p.m. of June 20 from the old Forest Creek neighborhood on Hil Mar Drive in Forestville. That is where Rick and his brother Lyndell grew up.

    "When he put my brother in the trunk, that's the last everybody seen of him, him getting in the trunk of that car," says Lyndell Sowells.

    From inside the trunk, Rick tried calling his mother. But Linda says she didn’t know he was in trouble and so she didn't answer the phone.

    "So I lay back down and I received a text message. And it said 'Mom, I'm being kidnapped!” says Linda.

    She says in a second text message, Rick told her the man's name. It was an acquaintance who a month later was arrested and charged in a double murder.
