    A woman told police she was carjacked in Chicago, driven to Schaumburg and let go near a hotel.

    Schaumburg Police have called off a search for a man suspected of carjacking a woman in Chicago.

    Police said a Rockford woman in her mid-20s told authorities not to continue with the case after she reportedly was carjacked around 3:45 a.m. Friday and abducted in Chicago, then driven to the northwest suburb and let go near a hotel just west of Woodfield Mall.

    A Chicago Police spokesperson told NBC Chicago their department was unaware of the woman's request to stop the case.

    Sgt. John Nebel said police were contacted by OnStar about a woman needing assistance at Higgins and Plum Grove roads near the Hilton Garden Inn. When police arrived the woman told them she had been carjacked in Chicago.

    There was a report of a carjacking at North LaSalle and Oak Street on the city's Near North Side, police said.

    The suspect is described as a tall black male in a dark baseball hat. Officers from Schaumburg, Hanover Park and Hoffman Estates police departments searched for the suspect with two canine units in the area between Gulf Road on north, Higgins on the south, Meachum on the east and Plum Grove on the west.

    Those perimeters were lifted at about 7:45 a.m. when police said the suspect may have gotten out of the boundaries.

    Nebel said the suspect is on foot in Schaumburg. The woman suffered minor face injuries and is safe, Nebel said. She is being interviewed by police.
