SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Police are investigating a woman’s report that she was abducted by a man in Louisiana and dumped on a California street.
San Francisco police say the 51-year-old woman was found disoriented near the city’s Embarcadero by a security guard Sunday night.
Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, says the woman told investigators that she was kidnapped last Wednesday near her car outside a laundry business in Monroe, La. and driven across the country. She said her kidnapper kicked her out of the car shortly before the guard encountered her.
Officers later found her 2007 black Ford sedan in another part of town.
Police say they are looking for a white man who’s 35- to 45-years-old with a large build and missing teeth who was wearing a yellow shirt and blue jeans.
