Hostage gets help by ordering pizza

Posted: Updated:
AVON PARK, Fla. (KWWL) - A woman being held hostage gets help at her door -- by ordering a pizza. It happened in Florida. She used an app to order a pizza from Pizza Hut -- and attached two secret messages.

"The order comes through and she had edited her ticket," said Candy Hamilton, Pizza Hut Manager. "On the bottom, it said 'hostage help' and on the top it said 'get 9-1-1. Help.'"

Employees called 9-1-1 and deputies checked it out. They say a man had been holding his girlfriend and her three kids inside their home for most of the day. The woman and kids are OK, the man is in jail.
