Police are investigating a possible abduction in the Lévis, just south of Quebec City.

Police said they believe a 17-year-old girl was forced into a wine-coloured van on Beaumont Street, in the community of St-Romuald.

They say the suspect is a man in his 40s, who was wearing a beige coat and jeans.

Police described the young woman as tall, thin, and wearing a black, hooded jacket.
