Police are investigating a home invasion and abduction in the Overbrook section of Philadelphia.
Investigators told Tim Furlong of NBCPhiladelphia.com that around 5 a.m. on Wednesday three masked men broke into the home on the 900 block of 66th Street and kidnapped a woman at gunpoint.
They say the suspects abducted Carmen Brady, 24, when they couldn't find the person they really wanted, her brother, a man police are calling "Bam."
The gunmen fled the scene with Brady in her father's Buick Park Avenue.
Police said that the gunmen have used Brady's cell phone to contact the family of the victim. The suspects told the family that they are treating her well, but that they want the money her brother owes them.
Police are looking for the gunmen, victim and the stolen light blue/green Park Avenue with Pennsylvania tags, license plate number HDJ3752.
"Please release my niece. Let her come home, She have a family that loves her and we just want her home safe in peace, please just let my niece home," said the victim's aunt.
According to investigators, the home is a known drug house.
