When 12-year-old Jan Broberg begged her parents for permission to go horseback riding with a beloved family friend, they graciously agreed. Robert Berchtold, after all, was married, a father of five children, the family’s neighbor, and a devoted church member. The Broberg’s trusted him completely. Jan didn’t return that night. On October 17, 1974, she was kidnapped, drugged, strapped to a tiny bed and driven to Mexico. The FBI conducted a nationwide manhunt and found Jan 5 weeks later, but the bizarre story didn’t stop there. Berchtold was welcomed back into their lives and allowed to spend time alone with Jan regularly….until he kidnapped her a second time! ABDUCTED IN PLAIN SIGHT tells the story of one family’s struggle with desire, deceit, faith and forgiveness. The Broberg’s troubling admissions reveal epic failures and untold personal dramas that point to the biggest tragedy of all – that these crimes could have been prevented.
