This happened in like 2002 a girl who I was friends with met a guy online and he told her he was 16. Well he was actually a 47 year old and while her dad, he was a cop, and brother were at work he kidnapped her. The FBI came down to help and it was a big deal. She was gone 19 hours when they found her and her abductor in a storage unit, she had been raped and killed before he killed himself.


22. Playing Harp With Elizabeth Smart

I grew up in Utah and played harp with Elizabeth Smart in a few concerts. She and I had the same harp teacher growing up. I also played in a concert for Elizabeth with some other students under that teacher after she was kidnapped. After she was found, Elizabeth said in an interview that she never saw any of the billboards nor heard about the massive amounts of news stories about her, but she did know about that little concert her fellow harp students played for her in Salt Lake City.
