As per NBC News, Corey Brewer, a 38-year old man from Pittsburg, Pennysylvania kidnapped his ex-girlfriend on May 1.

The woman was able to manage her rescue by leaving small notes in the public bathrooms, desperately asking people to help whenever she was allowed to visit one by her kidnapper.
The first of these notes were discovered in a Walmart branch in Carnegie on Thursday, July 8. The note read that the captive has been subjected to physical and sexual abuse and urged any person who read the note to contact 911.
The note also included an address, with a warning the kidnapper has a knife and added: "If I don’t make it, tell my family I love them."

Then on July 10, another person found a note in the women's bathroom at the Fallingwater museum in Mill Run; approximately 65 miles to the southeast of Pittsburgh. The note read that she had been held captive at Spreading Oak Drive and that she was not on vacation.
