    CA - Possible kidnapping caught on video, Corona, Nov 2004

    LOS ANGELES -- Police are searching for a possible kidnapping victim Thursday after surveillance video shows a woman being forced into the trunk of a car.

    The woman was abducted Nov. 7 in the parking lot of a Corona discount mall. Surveillance cameras provided hazy video of the incident.


    The video shows a woman running from a black Toyota Camry Solara. A man inside the two-door vehicle chased the woman down and forced her into the car's trunk.


    The car sped away as onlookers watched.


    The woman is in her late teens or early 20s, according to police.

    Here is the link, with the video: http://www.nbc4.tv/news/3909195/detail.html

    This is so sad. You know if they forced her into the trunk that it isn't looking good for her.

    Why the hell did all those people just stand there and watch this? couldn't anyone follow the car and get the liscence number? People can be so stupid!

    They still don't know who she was even. Sad.

    Anybody been reported missing in that area? I hate to be suspicious--but something similar to this happened a while back in my home state, and it was a bunch of teens pulling a stunt. A joke. They just wanted to stir things up.

    If they can find out who SHE is, maybe they can determine who he is...
    I agree - I can't believe all those people stood by and did NOTHING.

    I thought about it being a prank too (As sad as it is, I am hoping that I am right). It is just strange...I just wish that I could have made her run back into the store and not around the corner.

    I guess that everyone just stood there because they did not really believe what was going on. Here is an interesting case with withnesses that did nothing:

    Kitty Genovese Murder:
    Thirty-seven people witnessed it and did not want to get involved. Detective Mark Gado examines the mind set of these silent witnesses and the serial murderer responsible for Kitty's death.

    I wasn't able to watch the video from the link this morning, my computer was acting too nuts. But I just saw the video on the news and it doesn't look much like a prank anymore. I saw that no one has been reported missing, but it looked terrifyingly real.

    I wonder if any cars have remained in the lot overnight. If this is real, she may have had a car on the lot and LE can identify her that way.

    Woman Kidnapped, Caught On Videotape

    By Larry Wheeler
    KTLA-TV Newswriter

    November 11, 2004, 9:00 AM PST

    CORONA -- The video starts by showing a woman walking by herself at the Corona Discount Mall.

    It's about 6:00 p.m. (PST) sometime between Saturday and Monday. She talks to two men, then keeps going towards a Rite Aid Store. A black car drives up next to her and she starts running away, like she's trying to hide. The next thing that happens is that the woman runs into a parking structure.

    The car stops. One guy gets out and runs after her. The other guy opens the trunk. Witnesses heard the woman screaming for help. The two men stuff her into the trunk, then they drive off. A security guard walks outside but it's too late for him to do anything.

    Bystanders watch what happened and they look stunned. They say the victim on the tape could be a Corona woman who was reported missing, after her violent fiance was released from jail over the weekend. They think the car may have been a newer Toyota hatchback. On the video, the right front tire is a spare or donut tire.

    The video was released Wednesday, but police said they have no new leads.

    Well, a hatchback doesn't really have a trunk, it has a .....well, it has a hatchback. There is a storage area back there with a little covering (so people can't look in and see what you've got back there) but the coverings would be easy to push out of.

    Anybody got a link to the Corona woman who has been reported missing?

    Very short segment on Fox News last night which basically restated the same information; a police officer was shown saying there were no new leads, and area law enforcement is becoming more and more concerned. No mention of anyone reported missing.....this is freaking me out, all those people standing around, watching. They could at the least have shouted "NO" while dialing 911 on their cell phones.

    I am hoping this turns out to be a prank, but the video looked scary real to me.
