A 28-year-old woman named Josephine Panyin Mensah's pictures went viral after she went missing in Takoradi, although she was nine months pregnant and was almost due.
Just yesterday, YEN.com.gh reported that Josephine was found in Axim and was undergoing treatment in a hospital.
A local carpenter at Axim whose name is not disclosed gave a detailed account of how he found the 28-year-old woman lying helpless on the floor looking dirty but obviously sane.
The carpenter's account
"She was lying on the floor. I approached her and asked a few questions but there was no response. She was only using her hand to make gestures but could not speak. I realized she was not a mentally challenged person," the carpenter started.

According to the carpenter, Josephine then gave him a signal to bring a paper and a pen, and she was able to identify herself, where she is from, as well as the phone number of her pastor and family.
The traumatized lady was also able to give the man indication that she was pregnant but got kidnapped and the baby has passed away.

How a lady escaped kidnapping
On her Twitter handle, @bewtifulnaa, the lady indicated that two men who were dressed as mechanics, drove close to her, and tried to stop her by shouting that her oil was leaking.
However, Naa said the men seemed a bit forceful in their quest to get her to stop, which gave her the first suspicion that they had an ulterior motive.
According to Naa, she got more suspicious after the men parked at the Dzorwulu bus stop and continued signaling her to stop, as a car cannot be fixed at a bus stop but a mechanic shop instead.
