“We had put out a broadcast to all law enforcement agencies that we had some type of abduction and we had some suspect and vehicle information,” Capt. Will Dimitroff of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office said. “We located the vehicle and found the female victim OK in the vehicle. It is some kind of domestic type of situation. It wasn’t a situation where the parties didn’t know each other.”

Capt. Dimitroff said that was all that could be released at this time late Friday, but the sheriff’s office is still investigating and there may be charges to come.
