In 2002, Elizabeth Smart was one of America’s high-profile missing persons. She was abducted, at 14 years ago old, from her home in Salt Lake City, Utah. Nine months later, she was rescued by police officers in Sandy, Utah.
Throughout her adult life, Ms. Smart has worked as a child safety activist. She was recently in Las Vegas at the inaugural Safe City Summit to speak about issues relating to child abduction, recovery programs and national legislation.
The goal of the Safe City Summit is to have more people looking for those who have gone missing. It is about strength in numbers.
