LYNNWOOD, Wash. -- Police need your help finding this young woman who may have been abducted on Monday evening.

Witnesses told police they saw the woman being shoved into an SUV.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said it’s received several leads but so far they don’t know her identity.

Investigators say she could be in her mid-teens to late 20s, with long blonde or dark blonde hair and was last seen wearing a white jacket with fur around the hood.

Cameras caught her inside a nearby Albertsons grocery store, and then driving away in a blue Ford Explorer.

Fifteen minutes later witnesses said they saw the same walking down the sidewalk about a short distance away when the same blue Ford Explorer stopped.

The witnesses told police they watched as the driver jumped out of the car, grabbed the woman, and then shoved her into the car through the driver's side door.

The car took off but witnesses said they couldn't see any license plates.

Right now police don’t have much else to go on but it’s what witnesses told 911 operators that has detectives searching for answers.

“There were two vehicles, with a couple of people in each of those vehicles, who gave very credible and similar witness accounts and that’s why we’re taking this seriously,” said Shari Ireton with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver was described by witnesses as a white or light-skinned Hispanic man standing 5-foot-9 with a medium to light build. He was seen wearing a dark gray beanie.

Investigators searched both on the ground and in the air on Monday but they didn’t find the blue Ford Explorer.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call police.
