Kidnapped Florida Woman Escapes Abductors in Mississippi
Panama City Beach, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a woman who was kidnapped in Florida was able to escape her abductors in Mississippi.
A Bay County Sheriff's Office statement says 34-year-old Flor Esmeralda Turcio-Arias escaped Thursday evening and went to Hattiesburg Police Department for help.
The Hattiesburg American reports that Turcio-Arias told officers she had been abducted and escaped through a bathroom window. She took officers to the home of her captors where a man and woman were taken into custody. They haven't been identified.
The FBI is now investigating.

Florida authorities say someone called 911 on Thursday and said Turcio-Arias outside washing her car when two men drove up, forced her into their car and drove away.
