Good news.

There are enough shallow graves out in the deserts of Utah anyway.

/First class please

Miracles do happen.

Yahoo has a better version of the story right now

2003-03-12 05:36:52 PM  
Stop walking away Drew, you've conveniently have all of us hooked to the site..I think you should do the same!
Wet noodle whipping commence!!
2003-03-12 05:37:04 PM  
I bet that this will be a made for T.V. movie in six months. And it will star an Olsen. They are in everything nowadays. (In a bad way)
2003-03-12 05:37:13 PM  
wow! TotalFark is totally farked to the gills with this story. I've never seen that scrolling 'news flash' tag so many times on one page.
2003-03-12 05:37:18 PM  
Good job news reporters! A few details like who took her, what she has been doing for the last eight months and where the fvck Sandy, Utah is would be too hard to dig up.
2003-03-12 05:37:26 PM  
Maybe Laci Paterson wasn't murdered by her <name removed to avoid defamation> after all.
2003-03-12 05:37:28 PM  
how horrible of the abductor to make her play the harp. Thats really low
2003-03-12 05:37:37 PM  
Great news to hear. As it was said above, I even figured that she was probably I'm very glad to be wrong in this case. Congrats to the people who never stopped looking.

I believe this finding can only help others begin to look for missing people that they thought may have been lost. Hopefully, the same can happen in the Peterson case (especially for that unborn child).
2003-03-12 05:37:46 PM  
Well, it's good to have her back. Of course, she might be a bit disappointed to find out that during her absence, she is now no longer "legal" in Alabama.
2003-03-12 05:37:59 PM  
Oh shiat, where is she right now!? She has to be protected from her parents.

Good to know she's alive, though. Now she has to be kept that way.
2003-03-12 05:38:26 PM  
Free republic and Fark are the best for breaking news. better than CNN. Democratic Underground is sorely lacking in breaking news.

anyway, wonder how all the assholios that were glad Ricci died in jail feel now????
2003-03-12 05:38:33 PM  
Cool. Was she just chill'in, tak'in a little vacation away from everyone? Hopefully she wasn't beaten, tortured, or raped or anything.
2003-03-12 05:38:40 PM  
i heard roman polanaski was somehow involved...even though he is in...france..*spit*...
2003-03-12 05:39:31 PM  
Hmmmm ... 29 submissions of this story on TotalFark.

Glad to know she's alive though...
2003-03-12 05:39:42 PM  
WOW! Good news! I'm trying to figure out how she wasn't found up to now....guess that'll be told here in time.
2003-03-12 05:39:44 PM  
Where's Osama?
2003-03-12 05:39:59 PM  
We haven't confirmed this, but we believe she has links to Al Quaeda.
2003-03-12 05:40:08 PM  
That's awesome to hear.
2003-03-12 05:41:08 PM  
well, isn't that cute...

too bad nobody cares about you anymore, lizzie-boo. you're a has-been. all washed-up!

OMG ( all bow down to drew )

(--- still thinking about that total fark thingee next to my name (EG)
2003-03-12 05:41:14 PM  
this is unbelievable, she fell off the news because everyone assumed she was dead, this is really good news
2003-03-12 05:41:22 PM  
Kudos to FARK on the timing on this!
I checked Drudge, Blacksheep, WorldNewsDaily, et al - nobody had it (Drudge did but the link was farked.)

Very good Admins! - you catch grief when things go bad, it only seems fitting to provide praise for a job well done...
2003-03-12 05:41:24 PM  
Thank you HolyoaK! I think you said it. No one who is 14 going on 15 is kiddnapped and found alive 9 months later! She had to be in on it. She must have wanted to be where she was. Now there may be something illegal going on with this "preacher" guy but remember....this is Utah home of the religion with multiple underaged wives! I mean he may have put some things into her head but come on now. Something is rotten here....

2003-03-12 05:41:36 PM  
Thank God. Incredible. I needed this news.

- Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez is DEAD!

2003-03-12 05:42:12 PM  

She was obviously abducted by aliens. There is no other reasonable explanation.
2003-03-12 05:42:13 PM  
In the nine months she was gone she never ONCE had the opportunity to call 911?

Good to see she's alive, but methinks she's not the brightest girl around.
2003-03-12 05:42:14 PM  
For every happy story there is at least one bad one.
2003-03-12 05:42:19 PM  

Sandy is about 5 minutes South from Salt Lake City. It's pretty close.

2003-03-12 05:43:02 PM  
Hey, great news. Hope she's okay. I'd thought she was dead for sure, but I'm glad I was wrong.
2003-03-12 05:43:02 PM  
I bet she will be grounded for a long time

(assuming that she was in on it)

2003-03-12 05:43:08 PM  
My guess is she was escaping her uptight Mormon parents ...
2003-03-12 05:43:11 PM  
In case anyone is left feeling too happy and reassured by this, just remember the Juice is still loose.
2003-03-12 05:43:25 PM  
Kidnapped by a religious whacko.

Who'd a thunk it?
2003-03-12 05:43:38 PM  
Great news. . . . now if I can only find my keys. . . .
2003-03-12 05:43:46 PM  
We haven't confirmed this, but we believe she has links to Al Quaeda.

Will you quit watching Fox News? Sheesh!! :P
2003-03-12 05:43:55 PM  
I smell a made for TV movie in the works.
2003-03-12 05:43:59 PM  
Happy to hear good news

I truely hope she is 'well' and hasn't been horriably tormented for these months. I know its a naieve hope, but I do hope.
2003-03-12 05:44:01 PM  
I can't wait for the novel.
2003-03-12 05:44:15 PM  
I live in Utah. I promise you this will be VERY strange. Expect to here things like "My Patriarch revealed to me I Was to bring spirit babies into the world so I could reach the 7th celestial kingdom" <-- that is actual mormon doctrine, this is what they sound like.
2003-03-12 05:44:19 PM  
maybe she was pregnant and didn't want her parents to know...she was gone nine months after all...
2003-03-12 05:44:20 PM  
I actually drove through Utah the weekend that this happened on my way to SF from Seattle.

Defhermit what? did you get lost? how the hell did you end up in utah?
2003-03-12 05:44:31 PM  
I feel sorry for that Ricci guy, who the media vilified the months following her abduction.
2003-03-12 05:44:38 PM  
CNN hasn't got a clue.
2003-03-12 05:44:43 PM  
Great news. This oughta be SOME story.
2003-03-12 05:44:43 PM  
She was found about 3 blocks from here...very cool news.
