DALLAS - Police in Dallas have reached out to the public in their search for an alleged kidnapper and a female victim.
A 20-year-old Hispanic women is still missing after she and a friend were kidnapped as they were walking at about 2:15 a.m. from Club Rio on South Walton Walker Boulevard to their SUV, Dallas police said in a written statement.
"I'm very concerned about this young woman," said Dallas Deputy Chief Sherryl Scott. "She's by herself, the suspect had a gun -- I'm very concerned. And that's exactly why we're asking for the public's help in helping us to locate this vehicle or this young woman."
Authorities said an unknown Hispanic male, believed to be a stranger, approached them with a pistol and forced both women into the SUV, demanding money from them as he drove around the area for about an hour.
At about 3:15 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Pacific Avenue in the East Dallas area, the suspect forced one of the women out of the vehicle, driving off with another woman still inside the SUV.
The friend, who did not wish to be identified, said the kidnapper put the gun to her head and made the victim convince him not to kill her.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, 5'5" and 140 lbs. He has short black hair and was last seen wearing a red T-shirt, blue jeans and brown work boots.
The victim's mother pleaded for the kidnapper to release her daughter Tuesday.
"I would tell [the kidnapper] for him to have a heart," she said through a translator. "And please return my daughter. Please just bring her back -- whatever he wants. Let it touch his heart. Please return my daughter."
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Dale Richardson at 214-671-3668 or 214-671-3584.
