KATIE BEERS: From 'Kidnapped' Headlines to Survival
September 3, 2013
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Today's headlines are rife with kidnappings. But, back in the day when there were no Amber Alerts, being rescued alive was even more of a miracle. Today's guest, Katie Beers, survived a horrendous kidnapping that made headlines 20 years ago when she was 9 years old. It was a never-before-told story until she summoned the courage to reveal it in Buried Memories, a New York Times bestseller released this year. Neglected and abused, even before she was kidnapped by a 'family friend' and held captive in his underground bunker for 17 days of torture, Katie has literally 'lived to tell the tale', and inspires others by her story of survival.
