Woman Kidnapped by Ex-Boyfriend in Whiteville

WHITEVILLE -- A Whiteville woman was allegedly abducted by her ex-boyfriend Tuesday morning. She is safe now, and the boyfriend is in jail.

Police received a 911 call Tuesday morning about a possible kidnapping at Opening Doors Preschool on Lee Street.

Police say 25-year-old Melissa Cartret dropped off her child at the preschool, but then was taken away in her car by Kenneth Ford, her 31 year old ex-boyfriend.

After several hours, police found the pair inside a home on Fruit Ridge Road and arrested Ford.

Police say stories like this are common around the holidays.

Ford could be charged with kidnapping.
