Here's what was reported to police: A female witness said she saw four males dressed in dark jackets exit a white van, approach a female pedestrian, and take her into the van.
The van had tinted windows, police said. It possibly had the word "gardening" on the vehicle. The female wore a black waist-length jacket and light-colored blue jeans.
