Oregon State Police (OSP) Criminal Investigation Division is investigating a reported kidnapping Sunday evening of a 21-year old white female by two unidentified suspects who stopped to see if she needed help with her vehicle along Highway 730 about six miles east of the junction with Highway 395.

According to the victim, she was outside her stopped vehicle along the highway during the early evening hours of February 17, 2013 when two Hispanic males stopped and offered assistance. Shortly thereafter, the two suspects forcibly kidnapped the woman and drove her in their dark colored sport utility vehicle an unknown distance before she was able to escape and hide from the suspects in nearby brush off the highway.

Anyone with information can call OSP Detective Jeremy Gunter at (541) 278-4090 ext. 4951.
