The 9-1-1 call was received through a cell-phone tower at 12th and Walnut Streets in Center City, Pennsylvania. WPVI-TV (Ch. 6) reported Wednesday morning that Sweeten made seven calls to 9-1-1.

Sweeten called police from the trunk of the dark-colored 1990s Cadillac shortly before 2 p.m. Tuesday to report she had been abducted along with her daughter by two unknown black males. Sweeten told a 911 operator that her daughter was still in her family vehicle, a silver 2005 GMC Yukon Denali with Pennsylvania license plates GYK-8998.
