Around 9:40 PM Sunday night, 22-year-old nurse Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was walking down the street near her Philadelphia home when a man grabbed her, dragged her down the street, and forced her into what appears to be a gray Ford Taurus. (A security camera captured the attack; watch it here, if you can handle watching that kind of thing.)

A witness called 911 after witnessing the attack and hearing Freeland-Gaither’s screams for help. And Freeland-Gaither even managed to break one of the car windows in her abductor’s vehicle before he drove off. Still, police haven’t been able to track her down.

But officers did announce a break in the case earlier this week when they discovered that a man used her ATM card at 6 AM on Monday in a convenience store in Aberdeen. Freeland-Gaither’s family says they don’t recognize the man captured in security footage.

“I just want her home. She got family. She’s loved. Just let her come home,” Freeland-Gaither’s mother says.
