A tip to America's Most Wanted led to the recovery of Bobbi Parker,
wife of a prison warden and mother of two daughters.
Parker disappeared 10 years ago at the same time as convicted killer Randolph Dial escaped from prison.
Cops considered her an endangered missing person, fearing Dial was holding her against her will.
The tip led police to East Texas where Dial and Parker were working on a chicken ranch.
Bobbi Parker has been reunited with her husband and is being questioned by officials. According to authorities, Bobbi has stated that she was held captive against her will because she feared for her family's safety.
Now, Dial has spoken out about the last ten and a half years of his life on the run. In a jailhouse interview shortly after his arrest, Dial said he took Bobbi Parker at knife point when he escaped. "I was a hostage-taker and will probably live to regret it," he said. "But now I don't. Doing a life sentence, at my age, I wouldn't trade it for the past 10 1/2 years."
Details are continuing to emerge about the relationship and experience of Dial and his captive, Bobbi Parker. Dial said their relationship was never romantic and that they lived in seperate rooms. He likened Parker's relationship to him as "Stockholm Syndrome," where kidnapping victims become sympathetic to their captors over time, often out of fear of violence.
"She was living under the impression if she ever tried to get away, I would get away and I would make her regret it, particularly toward her family," Dial said. "I didn't mean it, but she didn't know that."
But some residents of the small town where Dial and Parker had been living said if the woman they knew as "Sam" was being threatened, she didn't act like it. Residents of Campti thought something wasn't quite right about the pair over the years. They kept to themselves, never engaged in any personal conversations and avoided going to the nearby town of Center. Their trailer is secluded, near a red dirt road and sitting on a wooded lot across from five long metal chicken houses.
