From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Katie Beers was kidnapped in New York in 1992 at age 9, by a friend of the family, and held in an underground bunker for sixteen days. She was eventually found alive.


She disappeared on December 28, 1992, two days before her tenth birthday. She left a message on her godmother's answering machine saying, "I've been kidnapped by a man with a knife."[1] She had been kidnapped by Salvatore Inghilleri, a close family friend, while at the Spaceplex indoor amusement park. On January 13, 1993, she was found alive in a secret bunker beneath Inghilleri's Bay Shore, New York home.[2][3][4]
