An employee at 146 Grocery was stating that a man was abducting a female from the store. Witnesses stated that the white male physically removed the female from the store then put her in his car climbing over her to the driver's seat. A store employee ran from the store to assist the woman. When he reached the car the man drove off (south-bound on US-146).

The male subject was identified as Donald Gail Vancamp, 31, of Livingston. The female subject was identified as Vancamp's girlfriend.
