Police search for second suspect in Ypsilanti kidnapping case

(WXYZ) - There have been new developments in a kidnapping case  in Michigan involving a woman who escaped.

Police are now searching for another suspect in the case. Police say they are looking for Raymond James March who they say acted as an accomplice in the kidnapping.

Police are also searching for  27-year-old Jeremy Abston, who was last known to be living in Ann Arbor. Abston is 5'11" tall and weighs between 240 and 250 lbs.

Farrah Nicole Cook was reportedly forced in a car around 5:45 a.m. in the 500 block of S. Hamilon Street. Police believe the 25-year-old was taken by her ex-boyfriend, Abston.

Abston may be driving a dark blue or black Pontiac Bonneville. The rear passenger wheel is missing a hubcap and it is possible a small amount of rust is showing on the car.

Police were alerted to the situation when reports were called in that a woman was being forced into a car by a man.

Family and co-workers identified the woman as Farrah Cook when they reported she had not shown up for work and was not at her home.

Family members tell 7 Action News that the 25-year-old was taken to some woman's home in Ypsilanti where she was held half of the day. Farrah was able to escape to a neighbor's house when the home owner got into an argument with the kidnapper, according to her family.

 Police say Abston should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Ypsilanti police at (734) 482-9878 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) SPEAK UP.
