COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus Police are now looking for three suspects accused of kidnapping a 39-year-old female employee from a Carl Gregory car dealership on Victory Dr.

Officials say the incident occurred at around 5:30 p.m. on April 26.

According to the police, a female employee went on a test drive with a man whom she thought was a customer.

Police said as the two went on a drive, a vehicle came behind the test car and stopped the car.

Authorities said two suspects armed with guns and wearing masks got out of their vehicle and entered the test car.

According to the police, the men blind-folded the female employee and put her in the backseat of the car.

News Leader 9 spoke with the victim who says she was the driver of the car, and then she switched places with one of the suspects. The suspect was driving until he reversed when the two saw a car follow them. The victim said the suspect then parked the car and two armed suspects entered the test car.

Police said the suspects drove and dropped the employee off somewhere between Chatsworth Rd. and Macon Rd.

The employee walked to a nearby house in the area and called police around 7:20 Saturday night, officials say.

Authorities are currently looking for three suspects involved in this case.

According to the police report, one suspect is described as a black male in his 30 to 40's. He seems to weigh about 220 pounds at 5'7" in height. He was last seen wearing a lime green shirt.

The second suspect is described as a black male in his 20's. He seems to weight about 160 pounds at 5'6 in height. He was last seen wearing a blue T-shirt with bandana.

Third suspect is described as a black male who seem to be between 18-20 years old. He appeared to weigh about 150 pounds and stand about 5'4 tall. He was last seen wearing a tan cap.

Police said the woman did not sustain any injuries.

Police are now looking for a 2014 model red Dodge Charger with four doors.

News Leader 9 will update this story as soon as new details become available.
