Christchurch police are concerned for the safety of a woman last seen screaming and struggling as she was forced into a car which then drove off at speed.
The woman, who has not been heard from since, was apparently taken from the Portsmouth St area in Aranui on Saturday night.
Residents in the street heard a woman screaming about midnight. She was forced into a car by a male and the vehicle drove off at speed, they said.
The vehicle is described as a black, two-door GT4 Toyota Celica and may have a registration plate starting with "XS".
The vehicle turned from Portsmouth St into Hampshire St.
The man is described as Caucasian, about 20 years old with a ginger goatee, about 5'10 and wearing a black hooded jumper.
Police would like to hear from the two people involved, or from anyone who may know the pair or can confirm the woman involved is safe.
