Around 8:30 on Monday night someone slid a handwritten note under the door of the University of Alaska Police Department in Eugene Short Hall. The unsigned note tipped police off that someone was being held, against their will, in an abandoned building in downtown Anchorage.

Campus police handed the case off the Anchorage Police Department.

They went to the building on Barrow Street in the Fairview neighborhood and found a badly beaten young man.

Police say he was carrying an ID, but is still unconscious. They hope to verify his identity soon.

No arrests have been made, but police are asking for help from the public to solve the case.
