Survivors Smart, Dugard react to Ohio kidnappings
UNDATED (WHDH) -- Former kidnapping victims are reacting to the news from Cleveland.
Elizabeth Smart, who was taken at the age of fourteen, spoke about what she would tell the women who were found.
"I would want so much them to know that nothing that anybody else can do to them will ever diminish their value,” said Smart.
Also former kidnapping victim Jaycee Dugard was honored Tuesday night in Washington for missing and exploited children.
Dugard was held captive for 18 years and at the event, she shared her thoughts about what happened in Cleveland.
"The human spirit is incredibly resilient. More than ever, this reaffirms we should never give up hope,” said Dugard.
