A Baltimore County woman who said she was abducted in the Old Court area was found locked in the trunk of her car early yesterday after using her cell phone to call police, authorities reported.

Sheila King, 35, told county police she was attacked by two men early Saturday morning and hit over the head with a handgun in the first block of Breton Hill Road. King said she was forced into her silver 1988 Subaru and driven to an area near her apartment in the 4300 block of Old Court Road before being locked in the trunk. King told police she was driven for hours before the car stopped, her abductors left, and she called police. County police Cpl. J. D. Matthews said investigators contacted King's cellular provider and were able to locate her in the 2000 block of Ramblewood Road in the city shortly after 6 a.m.

King was treated and released from Good Samaritan Hospital.
