Detective Sgt. Thomas Eberts said Jeremy Abston, 27, did not turn himself in as police had hoped. Investigators had at least one phone conversation with Abston after the abduction was reported Monday morning, Eberts said, and have spoken with family members, who have cooperated with investigators.

Police are still working to identify the second suspect in the case, a man who was wearing a red-checkered shirt at the time of the incident, Eberts said.

Abston and the man are suspected of abducting 25-year-old Farrah Cook outside her apartment about 5:45 a.m. Monday in the 500 block of South Hamilton Street, the Hamilton Crossing apartment complex. Cook later escaped her abductors at The Villas, an apartment complex in Ypsilanti Township.

Cook and Abston dated for approximately four years, Eberts said Tuesday. The two of them have three children together, twin 4-year-old girls and a 3-year-old boy.

Abston is described as black, 5-feet-11 inches tall and between 240 and 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, white undershirt, dark pants and white shoes. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is encouraged to call Eberts at 734-482-9878 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).

Someone....please drop a dime on this guy. He shouldn't be roaming the streets if he's capable of abducting people. There has been a reprieve on the "no snitch" policy
