Abducted in Plain Sight: Jan Broberg's story

How did convicted paedophile Robert Bertchtold groom an entire family? Jan Broberg, whose story was featured in Netflix documentary Abducted in Plain Sight, shares her experience.

When Jan Broberg was 12 years old, she was kidnapped by a convicted paedophile - who didn't just groom Jan, but her whole family.

Robert Berchtold was a family friend, churchgoer and a pillar of the community. Jan's parents couldn't believe Berchtold meant her any harm.

Her story is told in the Netflix documentary Abducted in Plain Sight.

In her first BBC interview, Jan - now in her mid-50s - speaks to 5 Live's Kathryn Doherty about what she went through.
