Florida girl returns to family after abduction


The 10-year-old Florida girl who was kidnapped after getting off her school bus Monday, March 6, is back with her family. Jessica Rodriguez was dropped off at a Wal-Mart store in Gainesville, Fla., on Thursday, March 9, by her abductor, who was still at large as of Friday, March 10. Jessica walked into the store and told employees, "Call my mom. My name is Jessica." After getting off her school bus on Monday, Jessica was snatched from her driveway by a man driving a green sport utility vehicle. Her mother, Jennifer Graham, was asleep at the time, although she normally waited for the bus at the end of the long dirt driveway. The school bus driver didn’t see the man or the vehicle he was driving. Graham appeared on NBC’s "Today" show on Thursday to call for her daughter’s return. "We are praying for both of you," she said in an appeal to the kidnapper. "Please bring my baby back home to us." FBI agents joined local and state police in the investigation.
