West Virginia authorities are searching for a man they say bound a woman's hands and feet together before leaving her at a strip mine.
When she tried to leave, she says he hit her in the head and tied her hands and feet with rope.
He then allegedly taped her mouth with a sock and a handkerchief, and drove her to a strip mine site, shoved her out and drove away.
Authorities say Burns freed her legs and walked to a nearby house, where she called 911.
