Chopper footage shows the area where a missing 15-year-old Alexandria teen escaped her abductors in Grant County.

Alexandria Police Chief Richard Wyffels said the teen had been left alone by 32-year-old Thomas Barker, of Carlos, and two other men for the first time since she was abducted on Aug. 8, and used the opportunity to run for safety - eventually swimming across part of Thompson Lake.


Police say the teen was found running through a field in Grant County near Thompson Lake at around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
