MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A woman thought to have been kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend Wednesday afternoon in southern Minnesota has been found safe, according to the Mower County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities are still looking for a 27-year-old man  in connection with the incident after they believe he previously assaulted her when the couple reportedly broke up last week.

Authorities said a 22-year-old woman was meeting Zachary Rahlf at a public spot in the city of Dexter at about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday to get property back from him. She was being driven to the location by a friend and when she got there, she got out of the car and walked toward’s Rahlf’s car.

Authorities said Rahlf grabbed her, pushed her into the car and sped away. The incident took place at the Mower County Lake GEO Travel Plaza truck stop. The city of Dexter is located north and east of Austin off Interstate 90 in southern Minnesota.

The woman’s friend immediate called police about the kidnapping and chased Rahlf’s vehicle for several miles until his car overheated.

Rahlf is reportedly driving a 1996 black 4-door Saturn with the license plate 967 BNP.

Anyone who can identify Rahlf or who knows where he might be is asked to call the Mower County Sheriff’s Office at (507) 437-9400.

        Well thanks Hoss….my new years resolution was to be a more kinder…..and nicer to liberals….I mean libs have feelings too……I mean last year we were voted #1 in the nation for the Gay lifestyle…but this year we lost that ranking….such a shame…..and we just made it on the top 10 list for the worse places to retire…..due to us being #4 in the nation for income tax…..I guess we do have to pay for all this wonderful diversity….I mean having 27 different languages spoken in the St Cloud School System….well….someone has to pay for that…and it might as well be us! Anyway Hoss….you have a great day…and if there is anything you need you let me know….you have a wonderful liberal day…

    The arrest,rescue and whatnot of the exceptionally high forehead couple!Yes,today and everyday,somebody exceptionally weird gets their name in the paper.Yet even weirder and absolutely true stories escape the prying eyes of the media due to their minuscle investment in the reality of life and and inevitability of death upon this planet.So alien from the one that they suffer from in the darkness and fog in search of really exciting tidbits of nothingness.They both look like their heads have been stretched,elongated and put upon a Maori fire to shrink down to a saleable trinket,Aka within the walls Jolo! So be it!
