DALE CO., AL, (WSFA) - The Dale County Sheriff's Office has released new details in a missing person turned death investigation for an Alabama resident found dead in Arkansas.
The sheriff's office began investigating a missing person report on 24-year-old Laramie Cline on Sunday after Cline's mother became concerned. Cline reportedly stopped communicating with her mother on Thursday, Aug. 17.
During the investigation, investigators received information that Cline may be in the North Little Rock, Arkansas area. Working in collaboration with the North Little Rock and Jacksonville Police Departments, Pulaski County Sheriff's Office and the Arkansas State Police, investigators found Cline's vehicle in Pinnacle Mountain State Park, in the possession of a man.
