MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police on Wednesday, Sept. 25 asked for help in an abduction that occurred near 37th and Center on Tuesday, Sept. 24. Just before 4 p.m., police announce Chrystal Clark, 46, had been found safe.
The circumstances surrounding this incident remained under investigation, police said late Wednesday afternoon.
"I seen lights flashing, so I went to the window and seen all these police cars out here, so I started wondering what happened," said a neighbor.
The wanted man was identified by police as Eddie Beck, 49. Beck was described as African-American, standing 5'9" tall, and weighing about 170 pounds. Officials said he is bald, with a medium build. Beck was last seen wearing dark clothing.
Neighbors said they noticed police outside the home where Clark stayed around 11:30 p.m. They said they saw her earlier Tuesday sitting on her porch.
"She's always sitting over there with an old man," said a neighbor. "They're always sitting on the porch, talking. As far as I know, she was a good lady. Didn't mess with nobody."
Neighbors said while they know Clark, they did not recognize Beck.
"You didn't hear no noise," said a neighbor. You didn't see nothing or anything, so I was just wondering why there was so many police cars."
Neighbors said they were worried for their safety, wondering why this would happen.
"Strange, because I can't figure this out," said a neighbor. "Please release her. This is not necessary."
Wednesday was Clark's 46th birthday. Again, she has been found safe. Police did not mention Beck in their update late Wednesday afternoon -- but did thank the public for their help in this case.
