AUSTELL, Ga., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- An Ohio lawyer who told authorities she was abducted by a trio of car thieves and forcibly taken to Georgia is back home.

Authorities said 35-year-old Karyn McConnell-Hancock, who went missing for three days last week, had taken a flight from Georgia to her home in Toledo, Ohio, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday.

The pregnant attorney was found Saturday by a security guard wandering near Six Flags Over Georgia and her vehicle was later found abandoned on a local interstate highway.

McConnell-Hancock informed authorities the three suspects -- two men and a woman -- had dropped her off after forcing her to travel with them all the way to Georgia.

While McConnell-Hancock returned to Ohio Saturday, her Chrysler 300 will remain in Georgia to undergo processing.

The newspaper said the motive behind the abduction remained unclear to authorities.
