SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – Rhonda “Pepper” Christie’s story of childhood abduction was featured on NBC’s Dateline Friday night.

She now attends Humboldt State University.

At age 4, she was abducted by a former family friend from her home in San Diego. For the next 35 years, she lived without knowing her identity or her parents.

The Tribune wrote about Christie’s story in July 2010 in an article titled “Lost and found: The little girl who didn’t exist.”
