    This article describes some of the women being pulled out of the car:

    But.

    This reporter's been told the women didn't even know the name of the kidnapped female driver whose car they were in:

    I'm thinking this was could be a set-up and the woman driver just possibly isn't a kidnap victim at all?

    A few things don't add up to me.

    Why would anybody be in a car with a woman whose full name they don't know, going to deposit cash that early in the morning?

    Why did the kidnappers just kidnap the driver and not the other women? They put her in the backseat so they didn't need her to drive.

    Why would robbers kidnap a victim anyway? If it was a sexual motive, why leave the other women behind?

    BBM: Bar/restaurant workers, office cleaners, strippers, there are a lot of job-related reasons.

    Edit: if the woman driver was the one making the deposit, the kidnappers could have followed her from her place of work and assumed she might have access to more cash. Or, who knows, maybe one woman is easier to control than three.

    That car should be pretty easy to find, you would think

    I hope they let her go. :(

    search continuing but there's not an awful lot of news out there, considering a woman's been kidnapped at gunpoint.

    This is very bizarre. I feel like this should be ALL over the news since timing here is crucial.
