Eliza “Liza” Fletcher, 34, was jogging around 4:30 a.m. when an unidentified person approached her, police said. She was forced into a medium-sized, dark SUV and hauled away from the scene, police said, adding they did not know the direction the vehicle was traveling.
Memphis Police Department Major Karen Rudolph said at a press conference, “We were probably dealing with a missing person when we arrived at the scene.” “After further investigation, I found a video showing a black SUV parked across the street from where the victims were taken.”
Photos released by police show Fletcher running in a neighborhood near the University of Memphis. She was last seen wearing a pink jogging top and purple running shorts, police said in a warning.
Fletcher is Caucasian, 5’6″, with brown hair and green eyes, police said. She weighs 137 pounds.
