CORPUS CHRISTI - A 23-year-old disabled Corpus Christi woman who had been missing since Friday is back home tonight.
The family of Brittany Gonzales says they reported her missing after she did not return from what was supposed to be a short trip to a corner store for a drink.
Ernest Menchaca, her stepfather, tells us he found her as he was handing out flyers near Six Points this morning. "I said there is a lady right there I am going to see if she can help me. So I pulled over and low and behold, it's Brittany. I just started screaming at her to get in the truck, to get in the truck and she jumped in the truck."
Family members say Brittany claims she had been kidnapped by four men, blindfolded and locked in a room without any food or water.
However, police say no criminal charges are expected at this time. Stating that Gonzales left her home of her own free will and returned voluntarily.
Menchaca says that his stepdaughter is still shaken up and not her happy self, but he does feel she will recover. Britanny suffered from meningitis when she was a child, and as a result, she has the mental capacity of a 12-year-old along with physical injuries.
