    A manhunt is underway near the Ohio State Mansfield campus after a student was reportedly abducted at gunpoint Monday morning.

    According to a public safety notice that was sent out by the university, at 11:45 a.m., Skylar Williams was standing in a parking lot located on the Mansfield campus when she was approached by Ty'Rell Pounds. Police say Pounds displayed a handgun and forced Williams into his vehicle, then fled the area with her.

    Authorities have located that vehicle, but say Pounds carjacked another driver at gunpoint and stole a dark colored 2019 Dodge Caravan with license plate FMZ-9621.

    Anyone with information on Pounds' whereabouts or the whereabouts of Williams is asked to contact the Mansfield Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol at (419) 756-2222.
