An investigation has been launched after a distressed naked 18-year-old woman was filmed on a main road desperately flagging down cars for help.

The teenager was rescued after she was recorded stopping motorists on the Pan-American Highway in the south Mexican state of Chiapas, close to the border with Guatemala.

After footage was widely circulated, the state prosecutor's office identified the woman as Claudia N, 18, and said that she is safe at home with her family and receiving counselling.

Prosecutor Rogelio Estrada Heleria stated that an investigation is under way to determine if Claudia was the victim of a crime in the moments before she was found naked on the main road.

According to local media, the young woman entered a motel in the El Jocote area but fled the room without wearing any clothes minutes later.

Claudia ran to the main road where she flagged down a motorist screaming: "I beg you, please help. I cannot stand it anymore."

When police found her, she had been taken to a nearby ranch and was wrapped in sheets and kept under watch.

Footage was sent to the authorities and Estrada Heleria posted it on social media.

One witness said the teen had escaped from a Mexican cartel safe house, but this has not been confirmed by the authorities.
