An OSU Mansfield student was reportedly abducted at gunpoint around noon on Monday, with officials urging the public to report any sightings of the suspect.

According to a public safety notice released by the Ohio State University's Department of Public Safety, the student, Skylar Williams, was standing in one of the campus parking lots at approximately 11:45 AM when she was approached by a male suspect, Ty'rell Pounds.

A Facebook post by Pounds indicated that he had fathered a child with Williams, and that increased relationship problems between the two of them overwhelmed him.

Pounds produced a firearm and forced Williams to get into a vehicle before the vehicle left the area. The original vehicle was later said to have been located by law enforcement, but neither the suspect nor the kidnapped student have been found.

This is still a developing story.
