PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The FBI says a newly released supermarket security video shows a person of interest wanted in connection with the abduction of a Philadelphia woman.



The video made public Wednesday shows a man in a dark cap and coat entering the store, walking down an aisle and using a self-checkout station.

The FBI would not disclose where or when the video was recorded but a timestamp indicates it's from 1:45 p.m. Sunday — about eight hours before Carlesha Freeland-Gaither disappeared.

The 22-year-old nursing assistant was seen on surveillance video being grabbed by a man and pulled to car as she struggled to get away in Philadelphia's Germantown neighborhood.

Police say they're looking for a man who was seen on video using Freeland-Gaither's bank card and walking through a convenience store in Maryland, where she used to live.
