THORNTON, Colo. (AP) - Thornton police say a woman seen being dragged from a gas station early Saturday has been found safe and a suspect in her possible kidnapping was being sought.

Officer Matt Barnes says the woman was found about 10:30 a.m. He had no further details on how she was located.

Barnes says police had been called when witnesses saw the woman enter a gas station in the Denver suburb at about 2 a.m. and ask to use the phone. A man she appeared to know entered and demanded the woman leave with him. She refused and fell to the ground. The man then dragged her from the store, forced her into a car and drove away.

Officers spotted the car nearby. It was last seen speeding south on Interstate 25.
