Denise Huskins from Vallejo, California woman was initially reported missing by her boyfriend, Aaron Quinn, Monday afternoon.
According to Elite Daily, he told local officers she’d been gone for about 12 hours.
75 people teamed up to search surrounding bodies of water and couldn’t find a single sign of 29-year-old Huskins.
Huskins’ devastated family took to the news, making a desperate plea for her return. According to CNN, police reported there had been a $8,500 ransom demand.
On Wednesday morning, Vallejo police found a healthy, uninjured Huskins in Huntington Beach – over 400 miles from Quinn’s home.
Her kidnap was allegedly staged.
She was then scheduled to fly back to Vallejo to meet with investigators but disappeared once again as she never boarded her flight.
In a press conference, Lt. Kenny Park explained Huskins’ case is now being treated as con rather than a kidnapping.
CBS Sacramento reports Park told gathered media, “Mr. Quinn and Ms. Huskins have… taken focus away from the true victims of our community while instilling fear amongst our community members.”
The district attorney will consider bringing legal charges against the pair.
