A man found the group of women as he was driving through with his family.
"I was shocked by the sight of the women in this isolated area and I drive towards them," Abdul Rahman al-Harbi said. "When we got near them, my family and I could see that they were scared and worried, especially that it was the end of the day and darkness was about to set in.
One of the women was also carrying an infant, Gulf News reported.
A man had promised to drive the women from Riyadh to Makkah, but instead left them in the remote area and drove away.
"They did not have a means to contact anyone," Rahman said.
Rahman called police, who rescued the women, Gulf News said.
