Runaway bride goes home

The week's news at a glance.

Duluth, Ga.

A Georgia woman returned home this week after taking a bus cross-country to avoid her own lavish wedding. Jennifer Wilbanks, 32, disappeared after going jogging, four days before she was supposed to walk down the aisle in front of 600 guests. Police searched for her over three days, at a cost of $50,000; then Wilbanks called police from a 7-Eleven in Albuquerque. She initially claimed she’d been abducted by a couple in a van, but later admitted she simply had gotten cold feet. Duluth police said they may charge Wilbanks with filing a false police report. Her fiancé promised to take her back, saying, “Haven’t we all made mistakes?”
