The farmer who found Block said: "It's usually quiet out here. She was up so I could see her but I couldn’t tell what it was.

"When she come walking out of the grass I’m thinking oh my gosh, you got to be kidding me. When I saw her face I knew right away.

"It was just a great feeling, [I told her] ‘just get in the pickup, we’re going to help you now."

The teenager's mother Sarah Block has now been reunited with her daughter.

On Facebook the mum thanked everyone who had given her support during the ordeal.

Cops claim that Block was tricked into entering the house which eventually became her prison.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
