PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Police in Pennsylvania hope a new clue will help them find a missing woman.

Authorities say 22-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was apparently kidnapped off a city street.

She hasn’t been seen since that attack on Sunday night.

“Just give her back, just give her back, please give her back,” said Keisha Gaither, Carlesha’s mother.

Police in Philadelphia are looking at a new clue in the apparent kidnapping.

Officials say someone used the nursing aide’s debit card in Aberdeen, Maryland, which is about 70 miles south of Philadelphia early Monday morning.

“We have an unknown black male, appears to be in his 20s,” said Chief Inspector Dennis Wilson, with the Philadelphia Police Department.

The attack happened just before 10 p.m. on Sunday night in the city’s Germantown section.

A man can be seen on surveillance video dragging Freeland-Gaither down the street and putting her in the back of an older model gray metallic Ford Taurus

Witnesses say she screamed and kicked out the car’s back window before it sped off.

Police found her glasses and her phone at the scene.

Family members say Carlesha lived in Maryland for a short time and still has ties to the area.

“All we want back is our daughter, that’s all we’re asking for,” said Carl Freeland, Carlesha’s father.

Several groups are offering more than $40,000 in rewards for information leading to an arrest.
