YPSILANTI, Mich. (WXYZ) - Ypsilanti Police say they have found a woman who was reportedly kidnapped early Monday morning.

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.

He has been identified as 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.

Police are still searching for Abston.

 He 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.

Abston is wanted for questioning in the incident. Police say he 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.
