Two days later, police reportedly found her in a field that Danielle estimates would have been about 20 miles from the town center at that time.“They had told us that it had snowed, so they could see the tire tracks pulling in and the tracks pulling out and that they could see that she was trying to make her way across the field,” said Danielle, who described the meeting with police as lasting about an hour. “There was a building there that had lights on, so they felt that that's where she was going.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
