JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is actively looking for a woman who may have been abducted in Downtown early Sunday morning.
Officer Melissa Bujeda says two witnesses were walking their dogs when they saw an argument at the bus stop at 70 W. Forsyth Street shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday. The witnesses told police they saw a black female sitting on the curb arguing with two black men in a blue pickup.
Witnesses told police the woman got up and walked to the middle of the street and continued arguing with the men. Police say the two men picked up the woman and put her in the back seat of the pickup.
Bujeda says the men drove east on Forsyth, but they were not speeding or running red lights. Police say the woman and the two men likely knew each other.
Police are looking for a blue pickup truck. Witnesses provided a license plate number of BFW7834. JSO says the plate number does not come back as a valid Florida tag.
At the center of the search, JSO says they are looking for people of the following description:
- A black woman in her 30's or 40's with short hair. She was wearing a sleeveless shirt and cropped pants.
- A black male wearing a white Polo-style shirt
- An unidentified black male
Police say they are trying to identify the woman to find out if she is safe or not.
