New Images, Video Released in Philadelphia Abduction of Carlesha Freeland Gaither
New videos are being released by Philadelphia Police as they continue asking for help from the public identifying the man in the videos and photos below and finding Carlesha Freeland-Gaither.
The surveillance videos below show both the abduction in Philadelphia and the suspected kidnapper using the victim’s credit card at a gas station in Aberdeen, Maryland. The images were captured about nine hours after Freeland-Gaither was forcefully taken into a car.
The kidnapping occurred on the 100 block of West Coulter Street in Philadelphia, located in the Germantown section of the city. Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at: (215) 418.4000. The public is advised not to approach the suspect but to instead immediately call police.
Freeland-Gaither lived in Maryland at one time and it is not known if there is any connection to the fact that the suspect was using her credit card at a location that may have been known to her.
The victim is a 22-year old nursing student and her family has been pleading with the suspect, through law enforcement and the media, to release her.
