PG&E is offering a reward for information that will help police track down two men who kidnapped a company contract worker in a Walnut Creek parking lot earlier this month, police and utility officials announced today. A $10,000 reward is available from PG&E for information about the two men who remain outstanding after abducting a 57-year-old woman around 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 7 as she was leaving work at the Shadelands Business Park, PG&E officials said.

The woman was walking to her car in the business center’s empty parking lot when the two men ran up to her and forced her into her own car before tying her up and blindfolding her, police said. The suspects drove the woman to various locations to withdraw money from ATMs before they abandoned her in an isolated area in the Oakland Hills, according to police. The suspects got away in a smaller, older dark-colored pickup truck, possibly a Toyota, with a loud muffler, police said.

The woman freed herself and called 911. Oakland police responded and sought medical attention for the woman. Walnut Creek police then took over the investigation. Last week, police released photographs of one of the suspects captured at a drive-by bank ATM the day of the kidnapping. Police said the man in the photos went by the name “Aubrey.” The second suspect, whose photo was not released, went by the name “David.” Police emphasized that investigators do not know if these are the suspects’ actual names.

The men were described as two white men in their early 20s. The first man, or “Aubrey,” is about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs about 185 pounds with broad shoulders and short dark hair. He was last seen wearing a light colored T-shirt under a black zip-up collared shirt and jeans. The other suspect, “David,” was about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a slight build weighing about 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a mask, a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans, police said.
