MEDFORD, Ore. — A woman seen apparently looking for help early Tuesday morning in a troubling video shared by Medford Police has been found safe, according to the agency.
"Today, we were able to identify and locate the woman involved in yesterday's post," MPD said in an update. "Our detectives learned that a man and woman were involved in a domestic dispute at a home on Berkeley Way."
Detectives contacted the couple and confirmed that the woman involved was the same as in the video. According to MPD, she was not injured.
"Detectives are working with the individuals involved, and ask for privacy going forward," the agency said. "Like you all, we are greatly relieved the victim was found uninjured. Thanks again for the help."
Medford Police first posted the video on Tuesday afternoon.
"Please play this video with sound and you will see why we are concerned for this unknown female," Medford Police said in its original post.
According to the agency, the video was captured around 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday at a house on E Main Street near N Berkeley Way. Apparently sobbing, the unidentified woman repeatedly knocks on the door for almost a minute.
"She appears panicked as she tries to get someone to answer the door, but leaves before help arrives," Medford Police said. "We searched the area extensively, and canvassed the neighborhood door to door, but could not locate any leads."
The original video went viral, receiving thousands of shares on Facebook. NewsWatch 12 shared it on Tuesday shortly after Medford Police posted it.
"We appreciate everyone sharing the post to help get the word out," the agency said on Tuesday. "We will update as new information unfolds. If you have not seen the video, please go to our page."
