EXCELSIOR SPRINGS — Police in Excelsior Springs are investigating reports of a woman being assaulted and kidnapped.

Lt. Clint Reno says police are trying to locate 23-year-old Carol Thomas, who is from the Excelsior Springs area north of Kansas City.

Witnesses told police three men assaulted Thomas on Wednesday night and forced her into the trunk of a car.

Police say the car used in the abduction was found hours later completely burned out in a rural area east of Lawson, about 10 miles from Excelsior Springs. No human remains were found in the car.
