MINNEAPOLIS -- On Monday night, 16-year-old Hannah Anderson is back home with her dad after surviving a harrowing kidnapping by a one time family friend, James DiMaggio.
It will be a long road to recovery as Hannah learned only after her rescue that DiMaggio also murdered her mother and 8-year-old brother.
Hannah only knew that James Lee DiMaggio had taken her against her will.
For a week DiMaggio was her captor, taking her 1,000 miles from home into the mountains of Idaho.
It was there in a land known for its sparse population that Hannah was spotted by people on a horseback ride who said they knew something was wrong and called authorities.
Now, Hannah and her father begin the long road of moving on.
"The healing process will be slow. She has been through a tremendous, horrific ordeal," Hannah's father, Brett Anderson said Monday.
DiMaggio was killed by the FBI when they went in to rescue Hannah.
The Sheriff in San Diego County made it very clear that even though Hannah knew DiMaggio as a close family friend she was absolutely a victim and was not a willing participant in her kidnapping.
As a hint to a possible motive, authorities have said DiMaggio had an unusual infatuation with Hannah.
