DALLAS (CBSDFW.com) - North Texas police are trying to find a woman who they believe has been kidnapped.
Double Oak police were called about a possible kidnapping early Thursday morning. Police went to the home of Eileen Loskot, in the 200 block of Double Oak Drive, and discovered the woman never came home from work Wednesday night.
The 54-year-old woman has brown hair and eyes, stands 5’6” and weighs approximately 135 pounds. She was last seen driving a red colored 2004 Infiniti G35 with Texas license plate X86-NMP.
According to investigators, there are indications that Loskot may have been taken by two unknown male suspects and is being held against her will.
Loskot was last seen leaving her place of employment, Brodnax Printing, in the 2300 block of Reagan Street in Dallas. One of the company owners told CBS 11 News that Loskot is a production manager and has been with the company for a little more than a year. Surveillance video captured Loskot withdrawing $900 from an ATM in Cedar Hill with a shadowed figure next to her.
Loskot had left work at Brodnax Printing Company in Dallas two hours earlier. Coworkers said it wasn’t unusual for her to work late hours. And police said her husband woke Thursday morning to a troubling voicemail from his wife: The voices of two men could be heard in the background asking her about her debit and credit cards.
“She works well under pressure,” said coworker Steve Hamil. “It doesn’t surprise me that she was thinking well enough to hit the button on the phone.”
Authorities believe Loskot fell for a faked fender bender that was staged at the intersection of FM 407 and Simmons Road, two minutes from her home in Double Oak. The ATM she was spotted at in Cedar Hill is nearly 50 miles from that location.
The Double Oak Police Department, Dallas Police, and Denton County Sheriff’s Department are working together to investigate the possible kidnapping.
Officials are asking that anyone with information about the whereabouts of Eileen Loskot call the Double Oak Police Department at (972) 355-5995 or contact their local police.
“I hope they just wanted money,” said longtime friendBetty Prentice. “They got their money and we’ll find her safe.”
