Authorities say Eliza Fletcher was on a run around 4:30 a.m. when an unknown man approached her and reportedly forced her into a dark-colored SUV near the University of Memphis.

A missing person's report was reportedly filed after Fletcher did not return from her normal run.

According to the Daily Memphian, Fletcher's water bottle and phone were found in front of a house that is owned by the university.

Fletcher was last seen wearing purple shorts and a pink top, police said.
