Where Is Hannah Anderson Today?
Hannah Anderson was abducted by a family acquaintance, James Dimaggio who was accused of murdering her mother and brother. Fortunately, she was rescued by FBI agents on Aug. 10, 2013, at a remote wilderness campsite in Idaho.
Hannah's father, Brett, stayed by her side after the abduction, and she spent a lot of time with her family. Hannah stated in an interview, "In the beginning, I was a victim, but now that I know everyone out there is helping me, I consider myself a survivor."
"My mother taught me to be strong."

Hannah was an honor roll student at her Lakeside high school and was set to graduate that year, according to reports in 2015. She also aspired to be a detective and wanted to study forensic science and criminology.
Hannah has remained out of the spotlight since then, keeping a low profile. According to what we know, she is doing well and is presently residing in California(Cinemaholic).
DiMaggio was slain by FBI agents on August 10 at a remote wilderness location in Idaho where he had abducted Hannah, 16, following a six-day, multistate odyssey.
Investigators believe DiMaggio, known as "Uncle Jim" by his relatives, murdered 44-year-old Christina Anderson and her son, Ethan. Their remains were discovered after DiMaggio set fire to his home in Boulevard, a small hamlet 65 miles east of San Diego.
Christina, according to police, was chained, gagged, and beaten to death. Both bodies had been completely burnt. Investigators discovered evidence in the ruins that led them to suspect DiMaggio murdered the two and then set fire to the house to cover up his crimes.
Hannah's safety was immediately feared by police and family members. She hadn't been seen since Saturday cheering practice when she was expected to catch a ride home from DiMaggio.
Border officials reported sighting DiMaggio and Hannah Anderson in a Blue Nissan traveling past a checkpoint at the California-Mexico border, prompting authorities to issue an Amber Alert.
