PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police detectives are looking for a pickup used during a possible kidnapping.

Lt. Bill Fugate says a woman told investigators she accepted a ride from a stranger Tuesday while waiting for a bus to take her from Portland to Vancouver, Washington. Instead of taking her to Washington, the driver headed east toward the Columbia River Gorge and refused to let her out.

The driver eventually stopped on the shoulder of Interstate 84 near Mosier. The woman got out unharmed.

The woman described the pickup as a gray Ford from the late 80s or early 90s. It has an extended cab and lifted suspension. The driver went by Travis and is about 50 years old. He has blond hair, blue eyes and a heaver build.

Those with tips are asked to call Det. Lori Rosebraugh at 541-296-9646, extension 5350.
