Fayetteville, N.C. — Fayetteville police have found the woman who witnesses believed was being abducted on Tuesday, when they saw a man seeming to force her into a car after she refused.
Police treated the incident, which took place on the 100 block of Person Street near the Market House, as a possible abduction.
Using the help of surveillance cameras and the public, investigators were able to track down the gold-colored Buick Century that was seen speeding away from the scene on Tuesday.
The vehicle turned out to be a rental car, and the incident viewed by the public was revealed to be a domestic dispute between a couple. Neither the man nor the woman wanted to press any charges.
"We thank the public for all the tips that we received," said Sgt. Jeremy Glass, a spokesman for the Fayetteville Police Department. He said investigators used those tips to verify the vehicle was a rental, which led them to the couple who had rented it.
