GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, HOST: Jennifer Wilbanks is planning to marry her fiancé, John Mason, on Saturday. John called police to report her missing last night and he joins us now in front of his home. Welcome, John.


VAN SUSTEREN: Very well. John, so what time did she walk out of the house last night to begin jogging?

MASON: Between 8:30 and 8:45.

VAN SUSTEREN: I take it it was dark at that time?

MASON: Close. Not quite.

VAN SUSTEREN: Does she usually jog about that time?

MASON: Sometimes. A lot of times, she'll get up and go first thing in the morning, sometimes she'll go straight after work. She really doesn't have a set schedule.

VAN SUSTEREN: How about her route? Does she have a regular route?

MASON: And that's also by feel as well. Just kind of depends on how she feels that day. She wants to run some hills, she'll go one way. If she wants to go flat, she'll go another.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, if she run some hills, what's the area like? Is it wooded? Is it a commercial area? What's it like?

MASON: It's more neighborhoods with hills in it. We have a couple of really good hills, one down by the high school that's kind of a killer, that if she wanted to work on her legs real good that day, she'd go down there, or back behind us here. Behind the hospital, there's a couple of nice hills going in and coming out of the neighborhood.

VAN SUSTEREN: How about if she does a flat area? What's that area like?

MASON: It's the same, just a street, between here and Pleasant Hill Road, about a mile down and a mile back. It's pretty flat.

VAN SUSTEREN: Has she ever said to you that anyone has given her any trouble on her run?

MASON: Oh, no. Never. Never.

VAN SUSTEREN: Have you ever heard about anyone getting in any trouble, joggers having any problems running?

MASON: No, not a bit.

VAN SUSTEREN: At what point did you finally think, Oh, my God, she's missing? How long was she gone?

MASON: She was gone about an hour and 45 minutes. I didn't figure she would be out there that long. It just didn't feel right. So I hopped in the car and started driving around the different routes that I know that she could have gone. You know, she didn't really know her way down around here as well as, of course, she does back in her hometown, so she's still learning. So I went the basic routes, and then I checked a little park up town, and then finally, I wound up at the emergency room about 11:30-ish -- 11:15, 11:30 -- just to check and see if anybody there had seen anybody fitting her description.

VAN SUSTEREN: Has anyone called with any tips, having spotted her, John?

MASON: Several people have called the police. I haven't talked to anybody yet that said they'd seen her. I haven't answered the phone a great deal today because it's been ringing off the hook. Jennifer's stepfather and my dad have been helping me with that.

VAN SUSTEREN: Is she the type of woman who might like a little space, especially sort of on the eve of an important event, where she just might like to get away and gather her thoughts?

MASON: Not really. She kind of does that in her own way. She doesn't just go and run and hide. She just kind of does her own thing.

VAN SUSTEREN: What do you mean by that? What do you mean by that?

MASON: Well, I mean, she's not one that has to just get up and go and leave for several hours at a time. She would go, you know, read a book or watch a movie or something just to collect her thoughts and be by herself.

VAN SUSTEREN: What kind of work does she do?

MASON: She's a medical assistant. She works for Heritage OB-GYN in Gainesville.

VAN SUSTEREN: And so she doesn't work in Duluth at all, is that right?

MASON: No. Not yet.

VAN SUSTEREN: How far is Gainesville from Duluth?

MASON: It's about 40, 45 minutes.

VAN SUSTEREN: So has she been commuting back and forth recently?


VAN SUSTEREN: Anyone give her any problems at work or on her commute or anything like that?

MASON: Not that I know of. I can't think of anybody that -- everybody loves Jennifer. She's just outgoing and sweet and funny and, you know, has no enemies, and like her mother said earlier, you know, she never met a stranger. So it's hard to believe anybody would have a grudge against her.

VAN SUSTEREN: So what do you think happened, John?

MASON: I have no idea. That's what I've been dealing with all day today, you know, she left to go run between 8:30 and 8:45, and that's about all I got.

VAN SUSTEREN: Besides you being at home, had she spoken to anyone else earlier in the evening?

MASON: She talked to her mom when I was there.

VAN SUSTEREN: And was she upset at all in that conversation?

MASON: No, they were talking about what they were going to do today. They were talking about the different wedding stuff they had to get done for today.

VAN SUSTEREN: She didn't take her wallet with her, is that right, when she ran?

MASON: Yes. She didn't take anything with her, just a radio.

VAN SUSTEREN: And by radio, do you mean, like, a Walkman, so she could listen to music as she ran?

MASON: Right. Yes. MP3 player.

VAN SUSTEREN: Did she take keys?

MASON: No. I was home.

VAN SUSTEREN: And is that the usual way it is, is that she would go running and not take keys, expecting that when she got home, you'd be there to let her in?

MASON: Yes, she knew I would be. I mean, I told her I was going to be home.

VAN SUSTEREN: How about the wedding plans for Saturday? Anything upsetting? Is she all set for Saturday? Everything's scheduled, the place, the dress, the guests and everything else?

MASON: Amazingly enough, everything has fallen into place. We've had our bumps, but it's worked out really, really well. We've got a huge guest list and huge wedding parties, and it's going to be beautiful.

VAN SUSTEREN: When you say bumps, what do you mean by bumps?

MASON: Well, the church that we attend started a building campaign and decided they were going to blow up the sanctuary on April 1. Or at least, that's what they told us right after we had booked our wedding with our church. So we had to switch churches midstream. And just a few other things.

VAN SUSTEREN: Last night when she left, do you remember what the weather was like?

MASON: Yes, it was beautiful because I had just gotten in from running myself. It was very cool, you know, 50-ish, and dry. Very nice.

VAN SUSTEREN: Any reason why the two of you didn't run together last night?

MASON: She doesn't like to run with me. I like to talk when I run, and she doesn't like to talk.

VAN SUSTEREN: All right, John. Well, we certainly put up a lot of information and pictures about your fiancée, in case anyone has seen anything. Hopefully, they will call in with a tip. Thank you, John, and good luck.
