Pregnant attorney flies home to Toledo


ATLANTA - A pregnant Ohio attorney who was found in Georgia after she went missing for several days has flown back home to Ohio.

Karyn McConnell Hancock, 35, boarded a plane Saturday afternoon at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, said Sgt. Dana Pierce, a spokesman for the Cobb County police.

"Our Cobb County detective watched her walk down the jet way and on the aircraft, and we assume somebody was waiting on her," Pierce said.

He said Cobb police still have her vehicle.

Hancock had been missing since Wednesday when she was found Saturday behind Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park. Police said she reported having been abducted. There were no immediate arrests.

Hancock, who is six months pregnant, told Cobb County police that two men and a woman abducted her. She was last seen outside a juvenile court building in Toledo about 9 a.m. Wednesday, Pierce said.

The suspects reportedly dumped her out of a vehicle in Georgia on Saturday morning, and she wandered to a back gate at Six Flags, Pierce said. The woman flagged down a motorist, who called police at about 6:45 a.m. The park is in Austell, 15 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Details on where she was between Wednesday and Saturday, descriptions of her alleged abductors and the vehicle they were driving were unclear. Toledo police spokeswoman Capt. Diana Ruiz-Krause said Hancock called her husband Thursday afternoon to say she had been kidnapped. Police were unable to trace the call, which was brief.

Hancock is a former city councilwoman in Toledo.
