YPSILANTI, Mich. -

Ypsilanti police are investigating the abduction of a 25-year-old mother.

Police said surveillance video shows Farrah Nicole Cook being forcibly put into a dark blue or black Pontiac Bonneville Monday at about 5:45 a.m. in the 500 block of Hamilton Street.

Cook's mother lives next door to her daughter and heard a scream.

Cook's father talked with Local 4 and explained what happened.

"As a concerned parent, she called my daughter. She got no answer so she went over there to find out she had already gone to work. She tried to call her phone and no answer. She called her job and no show," Samuel Cook said.

Farrah Cook is a mother of three -- 4 year old twins and a 3-year-old.The children are safe and are with other family members.

The family said they identified Cook's ex-boyfriend, 27-year-old Jeremy Abston, off the surveillance video that was captured at the apartment complex where Cook lives.

Police are looking for Abston. They said he should be considered armed and dangerous. His last known address was in Ann Arbor.

Police said Abston has domestic violence incidents on file, but have not said whether they involved Cook.

Police said they are also looking for two other people who could have been accomplices, but have not released any further information on them.

The Bonneville in the case, thought to be between the 2000 and 2006 model years, is missing a rear hubcap and has some rust.

If anyone has information on Cook's or Abston's whereabouts, they are asked to call police at 734-482-9878 or Crime Stoppers at 800-SPEAK-UP.
