A 10-year-old Texhoma girl who escaped from her abductor's vehicle in New Mexico has been reunited with her family. Investigators have also issued a revised description of her captor.

An FBI spokesman said Marissa Graham was abducted Thursday in Texhoma, which is on the Texas-Oklahoma border in the Panhandles of the two states. She was forced into the trunk of a white vehicle and tied up. Her abductor later moved her into a purple vehicle, possibly a minivan or a hatchback.

She escaped Friday when she kicked open a door of the vehicle and ran into a convenience store in Clovis, New Mexico, about 200 miles away.

The suspect is described as white, about six feet tall, with a thin build, in his 30s or younger. He had short, brown hair, parted on the side and wore glasses. He was wearing a blue shirt with "Princeton" in orange letters, tan cargo-style pants and white Nike tennis shoes.
