Sheboygan Police have issued a state-wide alert for a man accused of abducting a woman. Police say the woman got away from the suspect and she is okay.

Authorities say the incident started yesterday afternoon but the woman reported it last night.

Police are looking for a man in a late 1980's, early 1990's black ford F-150 pickup truck. It has West Virginia plates. A witness described it as rusty. Police aren't sure if the suspect is armed.

If you see a car matching this description, please call police.
