Red Deer Rural RCMP are investigating a possible abduction that may have occurred near the Shell station, on the east side of Gasoline Alley Friday afternoon.

Police received a complaint of a possible abduction at around 12:45 p.m..

They are still attempting to locate those involved to see if the individuals are OK and to determine what occurred.

RCMP said a witness said they observed an adult female chasing after a truck being driven by a man. The female was visibly upset and said the man had her child.

Two teenage girls, who saw the incident, said a red truck drove around the side of the McDonald’s restaurant by the gas station and a woman was chasing after it.

They said the blond woman was yelling, “He has my baby. She doesn’t belong with you.”

The two girls said the woman tried to open the side door of the truck, then tried to jump in the window and the truck sped up, nearly hitting them in the process.

The vehicle is described as a two-tone red and grey pickup truck with a tinted back window. The truck was seen leaving the area in a northbound direction.

The adult female is described as having blond curly hair and was wearing a green sweater and pants.

RCMP were checking vehicles that match the description. As of early Friday afternoon no vehicle had been found.

Anyone with information is asked to call Red Deer Rural RCMP at 403-343-5591.
