A Utah girl, kidnapped from her home more than nine months ago, has been found alive.
15 year old Elizabeth Smart is back with her parents in salt lake city this morning.
Police found the young girl wednesday at an intersection, not far from her families home.
Her alleged kidnapper is a drifter named Brian Mitchell, who once worked at the smart home.
He has been taken into custody, along with a female companion.
A video taken of a man with two women in veils could help police prove their case against Mitchell. Police credit the parents for keeping Elizabeth's name in the media.
The Smart family says they never gave up hope and they're very happy to have her home.
