Abducted jogger says 'thank you Whangarei'

By -

A jogger abducted from Whangarei's Hatea Loop on Friday has issued a statement saying thank you for the support she has received since her attack.

On behalf of myself and my family a huge thank you to the Whangarei community for your outpouring of love and support and public display of solidarity reclaiming the Hatea Loop.

Thank you also to the amazing Whangarei police and medical staff who have gone above and beyond.

And words cannot express the gratitude to the amazing brave lady who saved me.

Whangarei is such a beautiful city and is still.

I look forward to running the Hatea Loop again very soon.

- From the young lady and her family.
