Sheriff's deputies responded to a domestic dispute which was initially described as a possibly kidnapping on Friday morning.

The incident happened around 10 a.m. at the intersection of Fuerte Drive and Redondo Drive when a  woman flagged down a passing driver and said she needed help because she had been kidnapped, according to La Mesa Police Department.

When deputies arrived to the scene the victim told them she had been held captive for several days in a La Mesa home.

Officials later discovered the incident was a domestic violence issue between two drug users, according to Lt. Ray Sweeney with La Mesa police.

The woman was taken to Sharp Grossmont Hospital, where police detectives will investigate the situation.
