Kidnapped FL woman escapes from abductors in MS

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.

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.

Calls made Saturday by The Associated Press to the FBI and Hattiesburg Police were not immediately returned.

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.
