Air Force Maj. Jill Metzger, 33, disappeared Tuesday after being separated from a group ofJill Metzger servicemen while visiting a department store in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Local police rule out a kidnapping; however, one just does not vanish from a department store.

“I rule out the theory that the U.S. citizen may have been kidnapped,” Interior Minister Murat Sutalinov told reporters. He said that police had received no demand for ransom.

However, Capt. Anna Carpenter, a spokeswoman for the U.S. military base in Kyrgyzstan where Metzger is stationed, said “nothing has been ruled out.”

On Thursday The Pentagon formally declared Air Force Maj. Jill Metzger missing.

Missing Air Force Major Found Alive; Jill Metzger Reports She Was Kidnapped Two Days Ago In Kyrgystan

What really happened and how she was abducted. She was abducted by 3 young men and a woman.

Metzger said she had been abducted by three young men and a woman in a minibus and held in a rural area 30 miles from Bishkek, Suvanaliyev told The Associated Press, citing local police in Kant, where he said she approached the first house she came to. He said she looked exhausted and her hair was dyed.

That account differed somewhat from one given by Metzger’s father-in-law, Kelly Mayo, who said in a telephone interview with the AP from Colorado Springs, Colo., that Metzger was found on the side of the road with her head shaved.

Maho said she had also been beaten. “I know she’s coherent, and whoever had her let her go,” said Mayo. “We’ve got her back. Praise the Lord.”

Suvanaliyev said the people who took Metzger in when she knocked on their door called the police.

Mayo said the Air Force’s Office of Special Investigations notified the family Friday afternoon but were given few details. He said his son, Air Force Capt. Joshua Mayo, was elated after being told about his wife.

“I can’t even describe it. He’s just beside himself, just unbelievable joy,” Mayo said.
