Runaway Bride Entering Treatment Center

Georgia woman who fled wedding now entering treatment center

The Georgia woman who ran away from her wedding is checking herself into a hospital. Officials from Jennifer Wilbanks' church say she's in voluntary treatment for physical and mental issues.

In a statement, the church says 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. She later invented a kidnapping story, then admitted it wasn't true. Word of her hospital treatment may be the last we hear about Wilbanks for a while.

Her family's church says it's not disclosing how long she'll be in the hospital or when there will be any updates.
