HOUSTON, TX – She wasn’t quite a bride, and we’re not saying she ran away, but she did run off.

Natalia Ershova, a 21-year-old Russian woman, caused quite a stir when she apparently took off from her Galleria-area apartment Friday night, without her shoes, purse, coat, money or phone.

Up to 30 volunteers with Texas Equusearch set out this morning, leaving no stone unturned and no dumpster unsearched.

But the married college student surprised everyone when she showed up back at her apartment, unharmed.

Now police are talking with her to find out why she ran off and where she’s been for the past two days.
