(Lancaster) -- Police in Lancaster County are searching for two suspects after a woman called 911 from the trunk of a car to report that she had been abducted by strangers.

Lancaster police say the 33-year-old woman called 911 around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday and said she had been abducted in the city of Lancaster.

Police Lt. Todd Umstead says that based on her communications with dispatchers, authorities were able to determine she was likely in Lancaster County Central Park.

Police then located the woman in the trunk of the car about 15 minutes later. She is being treated for minor injuries. 

Dozens of police officers have been searching the park, using a helicopter and bloodhounds.

Investigators say they are still trying to determine exactly where the abduction happened.
