The Fort Bliss soldier reported missing and endangered Friday has been found alive in Nevada, reports the AP, and tells family that her estranged husband abducted her from her El Paso apartment. Jeneesa Lewis, whose apartment yielded evidence of a struggle, reported being beaten and stabbed twice, and sounded "tired, scared, and weak," her sister says. Police have charged her husband, Clinton Lewis, with aggravated kidnapping.

"Clinton had seen it on the news and decided to turn himself in," her sister said. Added her grandmother: "I was just so excited last night to hear her voice. She has bumps and bruises all over. You don't always hear good stories, but thank God this is good." (More Fort Bliss stories.)
