Police were searching an area in South Toledo last night for a man who might have abducted a woman at gunpoint.
A woman called police about 8:30 p.m. telling them she saw a man carrying a shotgun or rifle walking with a woman westbound on Airport Highway, west of the Norfolk Southern railroad tracks near Westwood Avenue.
Police also received several calls from people in the area of Byrneport Drive reporting they had heard a woman screaming.
Police crews and the police helicopter scoured the area until about 11:20 and then called off the search.
