Kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart is engaged. The young Utah woman who was held captive in 2002 for nine months, is planning a summer wedding to Matthew Gilmour.
“We’re very excited for her,” Smart’s father, Ed, tells People.com. “She told us at home last Saturday. I wasn’t really surprised. They’ve been very happy together. We’re just thrilled. We’re looking forward to her moving on to this next stage and leading a very happy life.”
According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Smart’s fiance is from Scotland and they met while she was serving an LDS mission in France last year.
