The Harnett County woman later turned up in West Virginia, saying two men kidnapped her from the Cross Creek Mall parking lot. She says that she was sexually-assaulted.
Police don't know who the two suspects are, but they do have a picture of one of them. They say that one of the suspects tried to use the woman's ATM card. Police have the photograph, taken at the teller machine.
The 31-year-old woman returned home Tuesday afternoon.
Police warn shoppers to be alert in all parking lots. They believe that this woman's kidnapping was a random act of violence.
