Elizabeth Smart

Elizabeth Ann Smart (born November 3, 1987) is an American woman who survived a nine-month kidnapping and is now a political activist. Elizabeth Ann Smart was born in Salt Lake City, Utah to Ed and Lois Smart. She has four brothers and a sister and is the second-oldest child in her family. She is part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Smart was abducted from her bedroom on June 5, 2002, at age 14. She was found nine months later on March 12, 2003, in Sandy, Utah, 18 miles from her home, in the company of Brian D. Mitchell and Wanda Ileen Barzee. Her abduction and recovery were widely reported and were the subject of a made-for-TV movie and non-fiction book. On October 1, 2009, Smart testified to being threatened, tied, and raped daily while she was held captive. On November 16, 2009, Barzee announced she would plead guilty to assisting in the kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart, as part of an agreement with prosecutors.
