Fayetteville police investigating possible abduction

— Fayetteville police were investigating an incident where a witness observed a possible abduction on Saturday.

Police were dispatched to a disturbance call along the 3600 block of Murchison Road. They spoke with a witness who said they observed a possible Middle Eastern teenage girl, possibly 15 or 16, jump out of a black/dark-colored Kia sedan. The teen was seen running toward a bus stop after the vehicle ran off the road in front of the American Flag Self Storage business.

The witness said two Middle Eastern men in their early 20s also exited the vehicle, found the female and brought her back to the car.

Police said the Kia, with partial NC plate “HJJ,” was last seen headed onto Country Club Drive from Murchison Road. Officers and detectives were following leads and attempting to locate anyone who may have video of the incident.

The incident comes after two other reports of possible abductions happened in the city earlier this week. Thursday, police reported a man who tried to abduct a 10-year-old girl from her home. On Tuesday, police investigated a possible abduction involving a man and a woman. Police later determined that situation was a domestic incident.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact Detective T. Kiger at 910-705-6527 or Crimestoppers at 910-483-8477.
