“She knows we’re looking for her,” Faggart said. “We’ve attempted to locate her in several different counties the last couple of weeks.”

Hollar, 37, is believed to be accompanied by a 3-year-old, he said.

On May 13, the Stanfield Police, with the assistance from the Locust Police Department and Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, executed a search warrant at Hollar’s home at 103 Hill Top Ave., during which multiple illegal drugs were found.

Hollar was charged with intent to sell and deliver a Schedule 2 controlled substance, felony maintain a dwelling for controlled substances, felony possession of Methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and misdemeanor child abuse.

“The child abuse charges stem from dangerous drugs being in locations that small children could have easy access to it inside the house,” Faggart said.

Her mother, Patti B. Hollar, was charged and arrested for felony possession of a schedule 2 controlled substance and felony maintain a dwelling for controlled substances while her friend, Megan M. Mills, was also arrested for outstanding warrants for probation violation. Faggart said Hollar left the residence before the police obtained the search warrant.

In 2014, Hollar was arrested on drug charges after meth was found in her then-5-year-old son’s silver Power Wheels truck on the playground at Pete Henkel Park.

A post on the Stanfield Police Facebook page notes that Hollar, who has brown hair, is about 5 feet 2 inches and weighs between 90 and 100 pounds.

“We’re looking hard for her to serve those warrants on her and put her in jail and also to get custody of that child,” Faggart said.

If anyone sees Hollar, they should not approach her but instead call 9-1-1, Faggart said.
