JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After receiving a report of that a woman was possibly abducted Monday afternoon in the Beauclerc neighborhood, police determined that the woman, who was later located safe, was not kidnapped, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said.

Officers responded about 3:30 p.m. to the area of Beauclerc Road near San Jose Boulevard after receiving the call about a possible abduction. 

Police said the caller reported seeing a woman between 30 to 40 years old lying on the sidewalk near Beauclerc Road and she appeared to be having a seizure. The witness told police that she saw a small blue car, possibly a Chevrolet or Ford model, with two men inside pull up and then one of the men picked the woman up and put her in the back of the car.

The caller expressed concerned that the woman was being abducted, according to police.

But investigators said nothing indicated that the woman was resisting, and it was possible that she was having a medical issue and was being taken for treatment. 

Just before 7 p.m., police announced that the woman had been located safe and they determined an abduction did not occur and it was not a criminal incident.
