MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A Plainview woman abducted from her home Monday night returned to Minnesota Saturday after she was found safe in Charlotte, N.C., where her former son-in-law was arrested as her suspected abductor. "I'm feeling fine, real good seeing my family." Verna Petty, 55, told reporters on her arrival at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport late Saturday afternoon. "I'm SO thankful to be home." Mrs. Petty's face was bruised, and authorities said she was treated at Charlotte Memorial Hospital before leaving for Minnesota.

Charlotte Police Capt. J.D. Price said John David Lander, 28, was arrested around 11 p.m. Friday and turned over to the FBI. Lander was being held at the Mecklenburg County Jail and was scheduled to appear this morning before a U.S.

magistrate. Price said Mrs. Petty was found by a security guard in the parking lot of an office building. He said she was in a car, which was not supposed to be parked in the lot at that hour. In a TV interview, security guard Warren Bobbitt said Mrs.

Petty told him her former son-inlaw had left her in the car "and told her to stay there or she'd never see her husband again." "She had two black eyes and a swollen left hand," Bobbitt said. "The passenger side window had been knocked out. She said he'd shot it out with a pellet gun." When police arrived, Mrs. Petty told them who she was and what had happened and said her abductor had gone to a nearby lounge, Price said. Authorities went to the lounge and 1 arrested Lander, who did not offer any resistance, Price said.

Soldier who died in wreck identified From Staff Reports A Fort Bragg soldier killed in a Saturday car accident was identified Sunday as Todd Alan Wolfe, the State Highway Patrol said. Wolfe, 22, was traveling north on N.C. 87 near Sanford at 1:03 a.m. Saturday when his car crossed the center line and struck a southbound car driven by Deborah H. Joliet of Sanford, Trooper R.A.

Jones said. Wolfe, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown onto the road's shoulder, and his car spun over him, Jones said. Ms. Joliet was in good condition Sunday at Carolina Central Hospital in Sanford, a hospital spokesman said. Donald Gaines of Goldston, a passenger in Ms.

Joliet's car, was treated at Carolina Central and released Saturday, Jones said. Jones said he did not know what caused Wolfe to veer across the center line, but that the soldier may have fallen asleep at the wheel. Ms. Joliet was charged with driving while impaired, Jones said, although she was not at fault in the accident.

The abductor then left and Petty said he was able to free himself and contact authorities, who began a search for Mrs. Petty. Price said authorities don't yet know why Mrs. Petty and her abductor ended up in Charlotte. No motive has been established in the case, which the Pettys said began when Lander showed up at their home and "went berserk." In a public appeal to Lander, Carolyn Petty, who was divorced from him in 1980, pleaded to him: "David, I think that this has drawn out long enough.

I don't know what your motive is and I don't know where my mother is, David, but we would like to know where my mother is. Call the authorities, call whoever one of us."
