A nationwide Amber Alert was issued for Janelle Adkins when she disappeared from her Niceville home early Monday morning.
Late Tuesday afternoon, authorities found her in Troy, Alabama. Police believe she left for Alabama with 23-year-old Alex Gonzalez. The two are former co-workers. Police caught up with Gonzalez Tuesday in Slocumb, Alabama.
The family of Janelle Adkins believes Mr. Gonzalez lured her away. They now want to bring closure to this episode.
"This is going to be obviously a healing process. We're going to have to go through. She read about it in the paper this morning and cried and we've been prayin’ and cyrin’."
Mr. Gonzalez faces charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and interfering with child custody.
