Teen missing for 10 years saved by the power of belief

With my history of being exploited by someone I trusted at age 15, I can relate to Tanya Kach even though my situation pales in comparison to hers.

To most of us, kidnappers, rapists and exploiters are nasty people in every way and are in short, evil. They aren’t people we can like or even believe we love. They never treat us better than we treat ourselves. They are never "good people."

Kach told the truth to convenience store owner Joe Sparico after befriending him for 10 months. Even though he had a sense that something was wrong, he didn’t believe her at first.

Thankfully, Sparico cared enough to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. If it took Kach 10 months to tell Sparico that she wasn’t who he thought she was, I have to wonder how many other people before Sparico failed to believe Koch.

Would you have believed her? Would you have dismissed her as a kook? If you didn’t know what to believe, would you have known who to call?

Here’s more details on Tanya Kach’s story:
