Posted on 05/10/2005 11:06:04 AM PDT by MisterRepublican
ATLANTA Runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks, whose three-day disappearance led to a nationwide search and more than a week of tabloid headlines, has entered a medical treatment program.
The location of the program and its likely duration were not disclosed.
Wilbanks "entered a highly regarded, inpatient treatment program on her own volition to address physical and mental issues that, she believes, played a major role in her 'running from herself,' as she described in a public statement last week," family spokesman Sammy Smith wrote in an e-mail.
Wilbanks initially told investigators that she had been abducted, a story that quickly unraveled once she surfaced in Albuquerque, N.M.
The 34-year-old bride-to-be has said that she did not flee from her 600-guest wedding because of cold feet, but rather due to "a host of compelling issues, which seemed out of control."
Meanwhile, the father of Wilbanks' fiance thanked the city of Duluth, of which he was once mayor, for its time and effort spent looking for Wilbanks when she vanished four days before the wedding.

She should have done this a month ago and saved everyone the trouble.
If she could just get those eyes corrected while she is checked in.............
"Physical issues"? What does that imply?
Yeah...it's called COLD FEET!
I hope she cures whatever is ailing her. To me, it sounds like further damage control.
The headline conjures up an image.....
The Jane E. Jilter Center for Runaway Brides
...funded by the Ford Foundation, no doubt.
The groom is even more of an idiot if he sticks around. She'll might be able to "fix" herself long enough to get married without running but the female hormones will kick in and take control again eventually.
Issues? I didn't know she had any issues./s
Ok... this is her defense. Insanity.
If the boyfriend had an ounce of sense, he'd leave this one at the gate.
Gee, maybe she'll be abducted/run away from the "treatment center" too. What a hoot that would be!
WARNING : Never date a woman who has white all the way around her eyes color .. .. ..
Thanks for that, I was too dang lazy to do the html thingy lol
I feel really dirty for laughing at that comment LOL!
It's a ruse.
I think "those eyes" are the result of plastic surgery. I saw an older photo of her and her eyes aren't nearly that wide open.
Drugs and/or alcohol.
She looks like she's on a meth binge or something . Kinda scary lookin .. .. ..
Well, that explains a lot. CRANK!
What a whackjob.
"I'm gonna need a hacksaw."
"Sometimes I wish God would give me a Holy Ghost machine gun. I'll blow your head off."
What are you talking about. According to CNN,FNC, Larry King, Greta .......this.....is.....NEWS!
Gee thanks for the comments, whatever that meant.
Since Mar 31, 2005
No one has ever successful run from themself. But good luck trying babe.
Here's my take:
The shoplifting is a sign of food issues, her look (face and weight) implies binging and purging.
The fear of marriage is that the man will find out, as it's easy to hide clandestine throwing-up until you live with the person.
The sexual issues are another clue, as often food issues come from childhood sexual abuse, and her desire for celabicy is a strong clue that there is a sexual issue in her past.
She obviously needs help, TALK about hitting bottom!?
See my #33
Which is exactly whi she will be exalted and lauded in the media. Somewhere, somebody is thinking about a book deal, a movie, action figures, star on the walk of fame, the weirder, more obscure and out of touch with reality, the better.
God save us from ourselves. Please.
Makes me wonder if they actually close.
I would like to commend her fiance on behalf of all males out there. Thank you, yes, thank you for taking this whacked out nutjob off of the market and sparing some other poor guy the potential misery of marrying this, this, bugeyed Kermit the Frog look-a-like.
The groom to be was the one who was a "reformed virgin" and withholding sexual activity before the wedding date, not her.
all that being said in my previous post, I do agree, she has issues and needs some professional help.
Many of the reported situations surrounding her case are consistent amongst fallen Christians who remain in church as a social structure, revert to either legalism or lasciviousness, then ping pong back and forth in a frantic search for happiness.
Much of that misery is self induced by thinking about things from the perspective of self, rather than by first resting in faith in God in all things and thinking.
When reality bumps into wrong thinking, frustration arises. Where worldly systems don't contradict our wrong thinking, we are easily deluded into following counterfeit systems in search of happiness.
I stand corrected, it was the groom, I'd forgotten.
(I still think she has food issues though...)
Ohhh, Mr. Sensitivity. You get an F in PC. Should that be a red F or purple F? I don't want to damage your self esteem.
Couldn't the "15 minutes of fame" be over by now?
Ba da, ba da, ba da, that's all folks.........
Yay! Sean Hannity is talking about it again! LOL!
That's funny. Here eyes do look like L'il Orphan Annies.
Sure looks like she's tweaking in the photo.
