Carteret County - Twelve year-old Abigale Lefevers is back home a week after she was kidnapped by a registered sex offender.
Timothy Newman, 38, is accused of taking the girl on September 24. Officers say he had plans to marry her.
"She is ready and anxious to go back to school, which we're gonna work on, right now we want to get her the help she needs and help her be a 12 year-old again," her father Robert Lefevers said.
Her dad says they plan to go to school this week to talk with counselors. They hope to get her back in class next week.
Newman faces several charges when he's extradited back to North Carolina.
