ORMOND-BY-THE-SEA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a woman who left Indiana to escape her abusive husband disappeared while jogging near Daytona Beach.

A Volusia County Sheriff's incident report says 44-year-old Rachel Madison hasn't been seen since leaving her aunt's Ormond-by-the-Sea home on Sunday afternoon.

Her family told investigators that 50-year-old husband Jarvis Madison knew she was in Florida and may have kidnapped her. Sheriff's spokesman Andrew Gant says officials in Indiana obtained a warrant Monday for Jarvis Madison's arrest on a criminal confinement charge.

Rachel Madison has been in Florida since Nov. 16. Authorities say her husband had been calling relatives inquiring about his wife's whereabouts and had even threatened to kill her aunt for hiding her.

Gant says they're concerned for her well-being because of the past incidents of violence.
