Woman reunited with her husband after carjacking, kidnapping ordeal

BELDING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Belding woman who was carjacked and abducted by the recently recaptured Michael Elliot is back home with her husband, after a 9-1-1 call that may have saved her life.

Cheryl VanWormer was working out of her Jeep on Sunday night going door-to-door doing census work when she came face to face with the convicted killer, desperate for a vehicle.

"She was pretty tough," said her husband, Mike. "We always talked about situations happening and doing this kind of work."

But neither could have predicted the horror in which Cheryl found herself on Sunday.

While parked in a driveway on Main Street in Ionia, Cherly says she was approached by Elliot, who threatened her with a box cutter, and forced his way inside her Jeep Liberty.

The two traveled more than 100 miles, crossing the state border into Indiana before stopping at a gas station in Middlebury.

It was there that Cheryl escaped into a bathroom with her cellphone.

After confirming with dispatcher that her captor was armed, Cheryl went on to provide a physical description as best she can.

Police say it isn't long until Elliot knocked on the bathroom door, demanding Cheryl come out, and the dispatcher adamantly advises that she stay put.

In the end, Elliot simply left her at the gas station and fled.

She was not harmed in the ordeal.

Her husband Mike told Newschannel 3 Monday night he hopes this never happens to anyone else.
