Longview — A Mississippi woman accused of faking her own kidnapping to cover up an embezzlement scheme was captured Thursday in Longview.
Linda Gale Reed, 66, was nabbed about 7:30 a.m. when she left her house in the Pine Tree area.
Reed had last been seen April 29 at a Walmart in Hazlehurst, Miss., about 20 miles south of Jackson. She was presumed kidnapped or killed after her SUV was found abandoned on a logging road off Interstate 55 with her purse, cellphone and keys still inside, said Copiah County, Miss., Sheriff Harold Jones.
