AUSTIN (KXAN) — You hear news reports cases of predators taking advantage of kids and teens online, but it is rare to hear directly from a survivor of that abuse. Alicia Kozakiewicz told a very personal story that every parent needs to hear. At age 13, she was kidnapped by a predator whom she met online. She was held captive, raped and abused for four days before the FBI rescued her. She survived her ordeal and has since been raising awareness and training kids and parents about online safety.
