PHILADELPHIA (AP/WCAU) – Police say a bank card belonging to a woman abducted Sunday night from a Philadelphia street has been used in Maryland.

Detectives say surveillance images showed a man using Carlesha Freeland-Gaither’s card at 6 a.m. Tuesday at a bank located near a highway exit in Aberdeen.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect. That’s in addition to rewards totaling $17,000 from local officials.

A witness reported seeing a woman identified as Freeland-Gaither screaming for help as she was forced into a dark gray four-door vehicle at about 9:40 p.m. Sunday. A surveillance video captured the abduction.

Police said Freeland-Gaither’s glasses and cellphone were dropped on the street and she appeared to kick out several windows in the back of the vehicle. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
