Missing Indiana Woman Safe After 2 Months of Captivity

By    |   Monday, 08 Sep 2014 09:54 AM

A missing Indiana woman has been found alive after being held captive since she vanished in July and two people have been arrested in connection with her disappearance.

Reuters reported the Evansville Police Department as saying Joelle Lockwood, 30, went missing on July 9 and was apparently held in a residence in Indiana's Posey County. Lockwood had last been seen in Evansville before disappearing.

She was freed after a man visiting the suspects got her out of the residence and brought her to Evansville, where detectives interviewed her, then went to the residence and arrested the suspects, police said.

"Lockwood was reunited with her loved ones on Saturday evening," police said.

The identities of those arrested, along with details on Lockwood's confinement and rescue will be released by the Posey County prosecutor's office, police said. A call to the prosecutor's office was not immediately returned.

"Thank you everyone for all their efforts with helping find Joelle!!!," a Facebook post on a support page that offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to her recovery read on Saturday. "JOELLE IS FOUND!!! SHE IS ALIVE AND WELL."

Authorities have also been exploring any possible connection between the Lockwood case and the Aug. 15 disappearance of Kristy Kelley, 27, in Boonville, about 20 miles from Evansville, the Evansville Courier & Press reported last month.

Evansville police did not mention the Kelley case in their statement and a spokesperson could not be reached for comment on Sunday. A dispatcher for the Warrick County Sheriff's Office said on Sunday that Kelley was still missing.
