A 22 year-old woman was bundled into a car and kidnapped from a residential street.
A neighbour saw the young woman - who it is thought is called Karis Clarke - being punched repeatedly by a man in Seaview Avenue, Vange, at around 9.30pm on Friday (April 13).
She was then forced by him and another man into a black Jaguar, which drove away and has not been seen since.
Det Chief Insp Jim Sandford said: “The circumstances surrounding Karis’ disappearance are worrying, so we are keen to hear from her to make sure she is safe and well."
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
