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.
