Minneapolis police spotted the suspect and victim of an alleged abduction Thursday evening, a few hours after asking for help from the public.

Police had launched the abduction investigation after witnesses said they saw Alexis Jade Nabors, 20, being forced into a van, allegedly by her ex-boyfriend, Wesley Nathaniel Little, also 20.

The incident occurred at 3:18, police said, in the 3300 block of Knox Ave. North.

The police department issued an alert asking for help finding Nabors, Little, and the 1997 Chevrolet Astro van Little was driving.

Police say it was just after 7:15 when an officer saw the van with both Nabors and Little in it.

Nabors was unharmed and Little was booked into the Hennepin County jail.

Police said Thursday afternoon that Nabors may have had a "protective no contact" order out against Little.
