Georgia woman vanishes days before her wedding

Jennifer Wilbanks told her fiancé, John Mason, that she was going for her daily jog, and left, listening to her MP3 player, and wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue sweatpants and blue New Balance running shoes. When she didn't return after the 40 minutes she usually took, he waited another 20-minutes, then went looking for her. Several hours later he called the police. That was Tuesday night.

Mason said the area where Wilbanks usually went jogging was a fairly open, downtown area with well-lit sidewalks. Her normal route also included running near the local hospital. Mason did note, however, that 8:30 p.m. wasn't the normal time for his fiancée to go running; she normally ran first thing in the morning or immediately after work.

Police set up a grid in a one- to two-mile area Wednesday morning and Wilbanks' relatives and friends have been handing out fliers in the area.

"We called out a tracking dog. A tracking dog searched the area but didn't find anything so we felt like it may be best to start in the daylight where we can see better. So we have a search organized now with some of our officers and some family members to see if we can find out where she may be," said Maj. Don Woodruff of Duluth police.

I'm sure the family would appreciate prayer. I can't imagine the fears and worries they're going through.
