CHICAGO  -- The FBI is asking for the public's help in identifying and finding a man who kidnapped a woman from her suburban Chicago home and then drove her to northwest Indiana.

The FBI says the man assaulted a 53-year-old woman around midnight Friday in her home in Lansing, Illinois, and then used her car to drive the woman over the state line into Munster, Indiana.

An ATM surveillance camera there captured images of the man.

The FBI says law enforcement officers found the woman in Burns Harbor, Indiana. The car was found abandoned in Holland, Michigan.

The suspect is described as black, heavyset and wearing a white T-shirt. The surveillance camera images show him wearing gloves and a nylon stocking pulled over his head.
