Lethbridge police are investigating the kidnapping of a 64-year-old woman.

Police say the crime is linked to organized crime.

They say the woman was taken from her home located in the city's West End late Wednesday night and was brought to Calgary unharmed.

Relatives reported finding her vehicle abandoned and still running in Lethbridge just before midnight, and attempts to contact her were unsuccessful.

A couple hours later, she was able to flag down a police officer in Calgary.
