EUGENE, Ore. -- Eugene police say they are still investigating the events behind the reported kidnapping of 21-year-old Treasure Marler-Liggins despite the fact that she wasn't willing to talk to them about the situation.

Marler-Liggins was in the Target parking lot on West 11th Avenue in Eugene Monday afternoon when someone smashed the window and drove away with her inside the vehicle. Police said it appeared other vehicles had blocked her car in.

Eugene police announced later that night that she was found safe, but did not release further details at the time.

"Police have contacted and confirmed that Marler-Liggins is safe, and we are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the incident," the Eugene Police Department said in a statement to KEZI on Tuesday. "Investigators do not currently have a willing victim, or active participant in the case at this time. We want to thank the media and public for their help and support in the location of Marler-Liggins."

When asked for any further comment, police declined.

KEZI crews also went to Marler-Liggins' former residence where she had been evicted. Neighbors described her time there as troublesome, saying the activity at the home was constant, most of it occurring late at night. 

Court documents show Marler-Liggins was charged with assault, constituting domestic violence, and possession of methamphetamine late last year.
