The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office says Jessica Lynn Thompson has been found safe.

Investigators believed she was with people who were exploiting her and that she was in extreme danger.

Thompson, 25, was missing since Monday, November 30.  A surveillance photo showed her going to an ATM in the Shoals area on December 1.  She got out of a dark blue Chrysler minivan to get money.  The van has tag number 25DB923.

Investigators say Thompson was in Cullman on Thursday, December 3, because her credit card was used at Listerhill Credit Union.  Investigators believe Thompson was with an unidentified white male and white female in the dark blue minivan.  She met them online, and it’s believed the two were using Thompson to exploit money from her.
