WEST BEND - Stephanie Fischer, a mother of two missing for two weeks, has been found safe in St. Louis.  Her husband, Dennis Moe was also found at the same hotel.

Fischer was last seen October 6, when she called police and reported that Moe had beaten, strangled and pointed a gun at her.  Moe bailed himself out of jail the same day and neither had been seen since.

Fischer's sister, Nicole, told TODAYS TMJ4 Reporter Lauren Leamanczyk, she was afraid Moe would kill Stephanie.  "He's been very violent toward her and it was getting worse and worse," she said.  "It didn't really look good for her. But, now it's such a turnaround since this morning.  I'm so relieved."

Police believe Fischer left with Moe voluntarily.

Moe is in custody and now faces extradition to Wisconsin on bail jumping as well as several charges related to the abuse.
