911 Call Reveals Panicked Words Of Hostage Allegedly Held By Escaped Murderer

"I was kidnapped and I just got away."

Those are the words uttered during a frantic 911 call placed by an unidentified woman who, police say, was kidnapped by convicted murderer Timothy Buffington, 47, after he escaped from a prison in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, on Saturday night.

"He has four dogs, a shotgun, ammo and other keys,” the woman says in the 911 call, obtained by ABC News. “He can get more weapons. He can get more weapons. He has all our weapons, keys to my dad’s state vehicle, keys to get stuff out of the state vehicle, everything.”

The woman lived on prison grounds, according to THV.

An investigation is underway to determine how Buffington escaped. CBS News reports that the convicted killer was granted special privileges that allowed him to be periodically unsupervised during work detail.

"He had no disciplinary record in prison, he had no rule violations, no disciplinary record at all," Arkansas Corrections spokesperson Shea Wilson said. "Until he escaped Saturday evening, the only blemish on his record is that escape."

Buffington was convicted of murdering his ex-wife in 1998 and sentenced to 20 years behind bars. He had four more years left on his sentence when he escaped.

The suspect remains at-large.
