VALLEY CITY (AP) - A North Dakota college student who went missing for nearly a week before turning up in Arizona says she had a bout of amnesia and didn't know who she was.
Twenty-two-year-old Valley City State University student Amber Glatt vanished on the Fourth of July, prompting aerial searches. She contacted her mother five days later from the Grand Canyon. Her mother says Glatt has had recurring amnesia since suffering a head injury years ago.
Glatt tells WDAY-TV that after she lost her memory she met a man in a bar who let her tag along on his trip to the Grand Canyon. She says the man eventually saw online that she'd been reported missing and alerted her.
Glatt says she regained most of her memory on Wednesday.
