Elizabeth Smart: Where Is She Now? (Video)

Elizabeth Smart

Elizabeth Smart is now 23-years old.

It’s been eight years since Elizabeth Smart was taken from her home in Salt Lake City and held captive for nine months. Elizabeth turns 23 years old this Wednesday, and one of the best birthday gifts she will receive is the fact that her kidnappers’ trial is finally going to begin.

Elizabeth Smart was abducted by Brian David Mitchell from her own bedroom on the night of June 4th, 2002. She suffered quite an ordeal while being held against her will by Brian and his wife, Wanda Barzee, but miraculously, she was found nine months later and returned home safe.

Elizabeth Smart is an amazing young woman, and now attends Brigham Young University. She even gave Jaycee Dugard advice last year after her kidnapping ordeal, and told her to enjoy this time with her family.

You can watch a video clip below of Elizabeth Smart on Oprah in 2008, talking about her story.

    Nice of you to note her birthday. A couple corrections, however: she was a student at Brigham Young University but has taken time from her studies to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the “Mormon” Church) for a year and a half; although she’s moving forward with her life, I wouldn’t say that she was returned home safe after the abusive ordeal that she experienced while kidnapped.
