    Runaway Bride Checks Self Into Treatment Center

    GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- The Georgia woman who ran away from her wedding is checking herself into a hospital.

    Officials from Jennifer Wilbanks' church said she's in voluntary treatment for physical and mental issues. In a statement, the church said the runaway bride believes those problems played a major role in her decision to leave town last month.

    The 32-year-old woman sparked national concern by disappearing just days before her wedding. Authorities spent days combing for clues in her disappearance, but then learned she had left town on her own, and had invented a kidnapping story.

    Word of her hospital treatment may be the last we hear about Wilbanks for a while. Her family's church said it's not disclosing how long she'll be in the hospital or when there will be any updates.

    Meanwhile, Wilbanks could partially repay her home town by working as a nurse at local festivals.

    The mayor of Duluth, Ga., has put the cost of the search at more than $43,000.

    Her lawyer said it's not clear that Wilbanks is obligated to pay anything -- but that she wants to make amends somehow.

    Wilbanks could have many options, including a chance to work off some of the money through volunteering. The mayor points out Wilbanks is a nurse, and said the town could use her help with first aid at big events.

    I think her fiance should also check in. After all that bull that she ran him through he is still planning on marrying the girl.
