13 Kidnapped Kids Who Narrowly Escaped

Kidnapping another human being and holding them against their will is among the worst crimes imaginable.

But despite the thousands of kids that go missing each year that are never found, there are some cases that were miraculously solved. Thanks to investigators, their families, the public, and a little luck (or mistake on their captors part), they managed to escape from a life of imprisonment.

These 13 individuals were discovered after being kidnapped as young children and spending years in captivity. One of the victims, Jaycee Dugard, was found after spending nearly 20 years with her kidnappers.
