Police were notified around 7:45 a.m. after Fletcher never returned home from her run.

“Upon arriving on the scene, officers were advised that a female was jogging in the area at approximately 4:20 a.m. when an unknown individual approached her,” police said. “The female was reportedly forced into an SUV and taken from the scene.” 

Police say they have located some of her belongings, but are still searching for the missing woman. Investigators have only described her abductor as being a male.

Authorities have released images of the vehicle involved in the abduction, as well as an image of Fletcher from Friday morning.

FOX 13 Memphis reported that Fletcher works as an educator with St. Mary’s Episcopal School. In a letter to students on Friday, Head of School Albert Throckmorton wrote that Fletcher, who was identified as a “JK Teacher,” “has been reported kidnapped early this morning.”
