As authorities continued their search for two men for questioning in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a Johnson County sheriff’s deputy, authorities on Sunday released video of the car believed to have been used in the abduction.
The deputy, who is in her 20s and has only been with the sheriff’s office for six months, was abducted about 11:30 p.m. Friday from a parking lot as she was headed into work at Central Booking at 101 N. Kansas Ave. in downtown Olathe.
The deputy’s abductors released her about 1:30 a.m., dropping her off near Interstate 470 and Northeast Woods Chapel Road in Lee’s Summit. She found her way to the nearby Jackson County sheriff’s headquarters at 4001 N.E. Lakewood Court in Lee’s Summit, [spokeswoman Darla] Jaye said.
Authorities believe that two men in a dark blue Mazda saw and followed her from the QuikTrip convenience store near Santa Fe Street and Interstate 35 for 1.5 miles, Jaye said.
