Oregon State Police said this afternoon it is investigating a reported kidnapping Sunday evening of a 21 year old female by two unidentified suspects who stopped to see if she needed help with her vehicle east of the City of Umatilla.
According to the woman, she was outside her stopped vehicle along the highway during the early evening hours 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.
