SOUTHAMPTON COUNTY, Va. -- February 21 was the last time family and friends heard from mother of two Cynthia Carver.

A press briefing was held on Tuesday to discuss updated developments in the case, WTKR reports.

Based on the information received by officials thus far, detectives are investigating her disappearance as an abduction.

New details reveal that Carver was on Airline Boulevard in Portsmouth and North Military Highway in Norfolk on the day she was abducted.

The investigation also revealed a possible suspect vehicle said to be a silver Chrysler, possibly a Chrysler 200 or a vehicle similar to that model. A vehicle matching that description was seen leaving Carver's residence the night of her abduction.

Detectives recovered a knife and blood evidence from her home, and it does not appear that Carver left on her own free will.
