Tamar Wilson, the woman reported missing and possibly kidnapped earlier on Tuesday, has been located. According to a report by WLBT, no foul play was involved.

WLBT stated they were initially informed by Carlton Phillips, an investigator with the Port Gibson Police Department, that the victim had been abducted from the Highway 61 Fish Market, where she was employed. However, video footage indicates that she had actually left the establishment and proceeded towards a blue Hyundai Sonata, which was parked nearby with its door open, moments before the incident.

When authorities located Wilson, she was ready to board a plane. According to the report, Wilson had taken a rideshare service to board a plane to New York.
