Jerusalem police received an emergency call on Monday night in which a young woman stated that she had been kidnapped near Beit Har by Palestinians and was being held in a Palestinian village.

Police responded to the call and contacted IDF forces in the area who were able to trace her call and locate the 21 year-old woman in a building in the village of Beit Gala.

The woman told police that after meeting with friends she was forced into a white vehicle by Palestinians while she was on her way to a hitchhiking post.

Police stated that when the woman was found, she was alone and not restrained in anyway. Police are looking into the matter and investigating whether the event was in fact a kidnapping.
