On August 3, 2013, Hannah Anderson had just finished cheerleading practice when she was abducted by an unstable family friend named James DiMaggio. He took the 16-year-old away from her San Diego suburb after killing her mother and brother. An Amber Alert was issued but it took the FBI one week to find DiMaggio and Hannah in Idaho.
Hannah is portrayed by Jessica Amlee. She is best known for her role as Mallory Wells in the Canadian TV series Heartland. Fun family fact about Amlee: she is the granddaughter of renowed jazz saxophone player P.J. Perry. Kidnapped: The Hannah Anderson Story premieres on Lifetime on May 23 at 8pm. It will also air on May 24 (12am, 8pm) and May 25 (12am).
