The Mare Island woman reportedly kidnapped for ransom has been found safe in her hometown of Huntington Beach, her father told The SF Chronicle on Wednesday.
Denise Huskins, a 29-year-old Kaiser Permanente physical therapist, is alive and well, Mike Huskins said in a telephone interview with the paper.
He said he received a voice mail from his daughter Wednesday morning saying she had been dropped off at his home in Huntington Beach. He immediately called police in order to have someone pick her up and make sure she was unharmed.
“I almost had a heart attack,” he said. “I tried to get authorities to pick her up, but they kept asking me a bunch of questions. I said, ‘Send a squad car.’ I was hyperventilating.”
Vallejo and Huntington Beach police officials were not immediately available for comment.
Denis Huskins’ cousin, Amy Mattison, said in an interview that Huntington Beach police officers had responded to the home, spoke to Denise Huskins and were checking her out, but that she was safe and unharmed.
“Thank God she’s home and safe,” Mattison said. “I feel relief, thank God.”
