(Lancaster) -- Police in Lancaster say two men brought in for questioning in the abduction of a woman who called 911 from the trunk of her car have been released.

Capt. Kent Switzer says there's no indication the men were involved in the kidnapping of the 33-year-old woman Tuesday.

He says police are still trying to identify suspects.

The woman called 911 around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday and said she had been abducted.

Based on her communications with dispatchers, authorities were able to determine she was likely in Lancaster County Central Park.

Police located her in the trunk of the car 15 minutes later.

She was treated for minor injuries.

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