A woman who was reportedly abducted in St Andrew last Friday has been rescued by the police.

She was located by members of the St Andrew South police based on information provided by the Organised Crime Investigation Division (OCID).

Head of OCID, Senior Superintendent of Police Clifford Chambers, said she was found about 8:30 Sunday evening in the St Andrew South area.

Chambers said the police were able to locate her using information received and cellular phone data. He has, however, declined to say exactly where the woman was found or to disclose her name.

He says the abducted woman was taken to the Kingston Public Hospital where she was admitted in critical but stable condition and that she was to be interviewed yesterday.

The woman, who is in her 20s, was reportedly abducted as she travelled on a bus from her home in West Kingston to visit friends in the Riverton City area. She was reportedly prevented from getting off the bus at her intended destination.

The police have indicated that the woman was not the only person who was abducted, but said they were still carrying out investigations.
