As the details about three rescued women in Cleveland, Ohio unfolds, we offer a story from contributor Scott Carrier. He lived in Salt Lake City when 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart was abducted and then lived basically in plain sight for months. He says that we can be blind to what is right in front of us.

Hear this piece on this edition of The Story. Also in this show: Dr. T. Berry Brazelton, who is 95 and one of the country’s most respected pediatricians; and the original Teenage Diary from Josh Cutler, who has struggled with Tourette's Syndrome.
