The pastor of Jennifer Wilbanks' family says the Georgia woman who fled her home days before her wedding needs time to heal.

Her disappearance sparked a massive search near her home. She turned up days later in New Mexico, initially claiming to have been kidnapped and sexually assaulted -- but later admitting she ran away.

The pastor told ABC this morning he has received hundreds of e-mails about her and they have been "99 percent positive."

He also says her fiance has been supportive. He says "The number-one concern is for her to get a handle on what's going on in her life."

Yesterday, Wilbanks issued a statement apologizing "for the troubles" she has caused -- saying her escape had "nothing to do with 'cold feet."'
