“ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) –  A Georgia bride-to-be who vanished just days before her wedding turned up in New Mexico and fabricated a tale of abduction before admitting Saturday that she got cold feet and ‘needed some time alone,’ police said.
Jennifer Wilbanks, 32, was in police custody more than 1,420 miles from her home on what was supposed to be her wedding day Saturday.
‘It turns out that Miss Wilbanks basically felt the pressure of this large wedding and could not handle it,’ said Randy Belcher, the police chief in Duluth, Ga., the Atlanta suburb where Wilbanks lives with her fiance. He said there would be no criminal charges.
Wilbanks had called her fiance, John Mason, from a pay phone late Friday and told him that she had been kidnapped three days earlier while jogging, authorities said. Her family rejoiced that she was safe, telling reporters that the media coverage apparently got to the kidnappers.”
Funny we didn’t hear these reports on Friday night.
Clearly getting married to this guy wasn’t the big deal; they already shared a house….But the big wedding 1400 guests and 23 attendants might have had somehting to do with it. I wonder if the police and the FBI will be sending a bill.
But, you know what? I wouldn’t worry about the expense. I see movie rights in this.
