    A woman who turned herself in to authorities a decade after fleeing with her 8-year-old daughter in a custody case has been released from jail on $250,000 cash bail.

    Genevieve Kelley of Whitefield disappeared with her daughter, Mary Nunes, into Central America in 2004.

    The 50-year-old Kelley turned herself into authorities in November. Her lawyer says she wants a trial; she faces two counts of custodial interference.

    Kelley says her daughter, now 18, is safe. Authorities don't know where she is.

    Kelley, a family practice doctor, was free after posting $50,000 bail in December. A judge set the higher bail Dec. 18 after a prosecutor raised questions about whether she failed to turn over passports she may hold in other names.

    She was released Thursday from the Grafton County Jail.
