You're fast, good job!

This is wonderful, I must admit I didn't think there was much hope.

The Fox News Alert also said she has spoken with her family by phone, and something about the fiance giving a thumbs up to the media.

CNN on phone now with a pastor: her abductors let her go and she got to pay phone. They originally came up behind her and cut her hair and took her. Abductors were strangers to her.

How is it possible that I posted a thread 20 seconds after I saw the live Foxnews info (at 3:00 AM) and it gets pulled because there is a duplicate thread? Freerepublic is amazing. Looks like Im not the only night owl here. :)

When she talked to her family she said they cut my hair, they let me go and I found my way to a phone. Her family are laughing and are heading to New Mexico per Fox News!

They are taking a flyer and crossing out missing and replaced it with not! She is fine and will be reunited with family ASAP. Two abducters took her while she was jogging.

My husband and I were wondering this afternoon if Jennifer was hyperthyroid and had gone wacky and got cold feet over the wedding and just took off.

In a way, I hope that is the case rather than having her suffer what would have occured with an abduction, but either way, I'm really HAPPY that she is alive!!

Per Fox a man and woman abducted her. They cut her hair. A clump of hair was found at an office building parking lot about a mile from her home.

I can't believe they released her instead of killing her after she got such a good look at her. THANK GOD they let her go! At least, ONE HAPPY ENDING!

Abducted... found alive... headed to the Hospital to get

I hope she is okay - the trauma will be horrible.

Poor thing.

The family has the phone number of where she called because it's on their phone ID. I guess she has a good description of the people who took her.

This is wonderful news!! Thanks be to God, indeed. I was just sure we were going to see another "Body found in a pond" story soon .... Glad to be proved wrong!

Does this mean the wedding is back on for this weekend?

At this point, few know what really happened, but she left her wallet and keys at home when she went on the jog, so it would have been pretty difficult to get to New Mexico with nothing.
