Police continued searching for a missing 22-year-old woman three days after she was allegedly kidnapped in East Los Angeles by her ex-boyfriend.

Karen Pineda was last seen Friday around 7 p.m. near the 4000 block of Huntington Drive, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. 

"Karen Pineda was seen asking the suspect, ex-boyfriend Jose Luis Marin, to leave the area because the police had been called," according to a news release from the LAPD.

Marin shoved Pineda into his vehicle after an argument and drove off, according to the statement.

The two were last seen in a silver 2004 Nissan Altima with the license plate number 6MPUO56. Pineda was described by police as 5-feet-1 and 170 pounds.

Police are asking anyone with information to call detectives at (323) 224-0128.
