    It’s been nearly 10 years since she was kidnapped, but Elizabeth Smart is still making headlines. A spokesman confirmed Friday that Smart, 24, is engaged to be married later this year, though no details about the groom have been revealed. After her rescue in 2003, Smart displayed little psychological trauma and was quick to restore her life to normalcy. She has served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in France, formed a foundation dedicated to child advocacy, and worked as a commentator for ABC News.
