Eliza Fletcher, a 34-year-old Memphis mother of two who went by Liza, was snatched during an early morning jog Friday.

Investigators said the junior kindergarten teacher was abducted near the University of Memphis at 4:30 a.m.

Memphis Police tell Fox News Digital they received two calls around 7:45 a.m., one from Fletcher's husband Richard Fletcher III and one of the University.

After a fight, a man approached Fletcher and forced her into a dark SUV, police said. TBI recognised the car as a GMC Terrain.

She regularly jogged in the area, authorities said.  Fletcher is an avid runner who has qualified for the Boston Marathon.

Fletcher married Richard on March 8, 2014 at Dixon Gallery and Gardens on Park Avenue, according to Memphis Magazine. She's "athletic, warm, and outdoorsy."

He has marked their anniversary on Instagram each year since, including with a series of selfies this year.

"[Eight] years in the making with this smoking hot babe," he wrote. "Wouldn’t want it any other way. Even if the stomach bug is running through our family!"

Fletcher's parents declined to comment, and her husband and two children weren't home. Online images indicated a large police presence Friday night.

In a March 2021 Instagram post, her husband, Richard Fletcher, marked their seven-year wedding anniversary with an image of them smiling over an outdoor brunch table.
