LaTonya King found alive

Posted: Updated:

The woman who disappeared from the side of a Jackson interstate, has been located. Tuesday, local law enforcement announced that LaTonya King had been found. She had been missing since 1 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, the victim of an apparent kidnapping.

Very few details are being released on King's three day disappearance, or who took her, but she is home safe and sound. Jackson police tell us the 31-year-old has been found alive but would not say where.

The FBI and the Jackson "Safe Streets Task Force" found King. Through a joint investigation, they collected information which led to her recovery. Jackson police also assisted in the effort, but no other details have been released. The investigation is still ongoing.

LaTonya King went missing last Saturday morning. She had called her family after being involved in a wreck on I-55 near the Pearl street exit. Authorities said when they arrived on the scene, they found her personal belongings scattered near her Toyota Camry, but she was nowhere to be found.

WLBT spoke to LaTonya King on the phone Tuesday. She would only say she was "OK" after this ordeal. When asked where she was taken, and if she knew who her kidnappers were, she said she didn't want to talk about it.
