'I'm Being Held Against My Will': Woman's Note Sparks Search For Pickup Truck

| by Lisa Fogarty

A woman walked into a Wendy's in Atlanta on Monday morning and reportedly handed a clerk a note that read, "I'm being held against my will."

Police say they are investigating the incident and plan to access the store's security camera after the woman walked into the fast food restaurant on Wednesday just before noon, asked for a sheet of paper, left the note with a clerk, and was spotted walking back outside and leaving with a man who was driving a pickup truck,  reports11 Alive.

The woman's note read, "I'm being held against my will," according to a police spokesperson.

While she was in the restaurant, a store clerk says the woman spoke with a family, but that they don't have more information about the conversation, Fox 5 reports. Atlanta Police Lt. Charles Hampton says he isn't sure why the woman wrote the message on a piece of paper instead of speaking with the worker.

"I believe the driver of the pickup ordered food at the drive-thru, and then she came in to use the restroom, and I believe at that time, that's when she saw an opportunity to elicit help from authorities," Hampton said.

Police say they are searching for a white pickup truck similar to the one shown in this photo:

The Georgia license plate tag on the vehicle reads: Rockdale County, AZR 1028.

The woman has been described as Hispanic or biracial, wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans. The man driving the pickup is "white with long hair and wearing a green shirt," according to witnesses.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-TIPS or Atlanta Police at 404-546-5498.
