A Charlottesville-area woman may be counting her blessings after what sounds like a horrifying incident that allegedly began at her home and ended at a scenic overlook in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. According to a story by the Watauga Democrat, the unidentified 42-year-old said she'd been abducted June 23 by a young, gun-toting, sunglass-wearing, short and thin man who proceeded to force her to make the cross-state journey in her burgundy Honda Odyssey minivan. The woman was uninjured, though the Charlottesville Newsplex reports that the woman, who allegedly resides on Buck Island Road, was found "unresponsive" in the minivan. At least one official seems, in a quoted comment, to undermine the woman's story. The FBI is reportedly investigating.
