Cape Girardeau Police, FBI investigating abduction case
The FBI and the Cape Girardeau Police Department are asking the public for help investigating an alleged abduction of a woman, who told police she was abducted for hours before escaping.
The woman told law enforcement she was sitting in her vehicle in South County Park in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, when she was forced into a red, extended cab pick-up truck sometime between 11 a.m. and noon on Tuesday. She said she was then driven to multiple places and assaulted before she managed to escape in Effingham, Illinois, around 6 p.m.
The truck may have traveled south on Interstate 55 from Cape Girardeau and then back before crossing into Illinois.
The abductor is described as a white man in his mid- to late-30s with a salt-and-pepper goatee, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall, and heavy set. He was wearing a ball cap, long-sleeve top that was dirty, and light blue jeans. Authorities say he is possibly hard of hearing and a heavy smoker.
