North Korea Kidnapped Her 13-Year-Old Daughter. She Spent Decades Trying To Get Her Back.
Megumi Yokota was just 13 when she disappeared. On her way home from badminton practice at her junior high school, she vanished somewhere along the eight-minute walk to her house in this seaside town. It was just after sunset on Nov. 15, 1977, and the weather records from that day show a calm sea and clear sky.
