The woman's mother got a call from her ex-husband who said he received a call from a witness who had seen the victim being taken from the mall against her will.
Police said the mother called the victim's work, but she never showed up.
The mother then went to a location on Duke Road between Bayliss Avenue and Grey Road in Nutbush to see if the victim was there, but she was not.

The suspect is not supposed to have contact with the victim, according to MPD.
Police said the suspect grabbed the victim by the arm and forced her to exit the mall and get into a taxi.
The taxi took the victim and the suspect to the location on Duke Road.
Police said the victim and the suspect were then picked up by a relative of the suspect, but the victim was dropped off a few streets away and ran back to the Duke Road location.
When the victim arrived at the Duke Road location, her mother and police officers were on the scene.
Police said a family member made contact with the suspect and convinced him to return to the Duke Road location and speak with officers.
The suspect was then taken into custody and later transported to Juvenile Court.
