    Experience the mystery that captivated American audiences, the emotional true story of one woman's journey to solve her own kidnapping. A Lifetime® Original Movie based on a true story, Abducted: The Carlina White Story arrives on DVD March 5th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Carlina White was abducted as an infant from a New York hospital, solved her own kidnapping and was reunited with her biological parents 23 years later. Starring Aunjanue Ellis (The Help), Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) and Sherri Shepherd (TV's "The View"), this Lifetime® Original Movie attracted 4.1 million viewers upon its television premiere. The DVD includes Lifetime's one-hour TV documentary going beyond the headlines of the real Carlina White story (which attracted 3.5 million viewers). The Abducted: The Carlina White Story DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

    In August of 1987, new parents Joy White and Carl Tyson took their 19-day-old daughter Carlina to Harlem Hospital in New York with a high fever. Ann Pettway, who had suffered a series of miscarriages and was desperate for a child of her own, posed as a hospital nurse and walked out of the hospital with Carlina hidden from view. While Joy and Carl desperately searched for their daughter over the years, Pettway was raising Carlina in Bridgeport, Connecticut--a mere 45 miles from New York City. As Carlina grew older she began to suspect Pettway was not her birth mother and launched her own investigation.
