KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -

Authorities are investigating the possible abduction of a woman in Kansas City.

Police said that a witness told police that a group of men dragged the woman from an alley about 3 a.m. Thursday in the area of Prospect Avenue and Elma Street. They then forced her into a white van with tinted windows and a handicapped license plate. The van then left.

Officers talked to several neighbors, asking them what they saw. A white shoe was found in the middle of the street.

Police say the driver of the van was wearing a white shirt and had dreadlocks. 

The van was last seen going north on Prospect Avenue.

Authorities are urging anyone with information to call a TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
