Freeman, who returned home 11 hours after he first got in his car, later tweeted that Jones' rescue was "a moment I'll never forget."
Jones, meanwhile, said on Twitter that Freeman "hugged me the whole way home." He also retweeted a picture of the two returning, courtesy of Jones' girlfriend, Taylor Higgins.
