A very convoluted caper, that spanned several cities, ended along the freeway in Elk Grove this afternoon.

Police say the victim, a 50-year-old woman, was kidnapped somewhere between Vacaville and Dixon a few days ago.

Wednesday afternoon about 2, her son-in-law called 911 to report she had been left in the back seat of her blue Nissan, along the northbound side of Highway 99 at Elk Grove Boulevard.

Paramedics responded to the scene and transported her to Sutter General.

Police from Elk Grove and Sacramento are still with the victim, who they described in good condition.

They don’t believe she was the victim of any sex assault. Her injuries are  considered non-life threatening.

Officers are awaiting investigators from Vacaville police to arrive and take the lead on the case.
