Magnolia -- Two 16 year olds are being held on $150,000 bond after being charged with kidnapping in Magnolia.

Bobby Hudson and Torrie Lawrence are both charged with kidnapping, aggravated robbery, residential burglary, terroristic threatening and theft of property.

Police say on Tuesday the two suspects forced the victim from her home, and later made her withdraw money from the atm.

The victim was eventually released near Prescott unharmed.

The suspects were found near Malvern by Arkansas State Police and held there until Magnolia Police took them into custody.

Officers says they were able to use the OnStar technology in the car to shut it down.

During a court appearance Wednesday, the judge entered a not guilty plea on their behalf.

Hudson and Lawrence are due back in court on February 6.

Investigators say both escaped from South Arkansas Youth Services in Magnolia on Monday.
