(KSL News) -- Just where has Elizabeth Smart been the last 9 months? According to sources she's traveled quite a bit.

Unconfirmed reports, say Elizabeth was taken into hiding in the Mountains east of Salt Lake City during the hours and days following her abduction.

It's thought she was then moved to San Diego. Then, apparently returned to Salt Lake City. From here, again Elizabeth reportedly went to the south perhaps Georgia or Arkansas.

And, from there back to Salt Lake City. A woman who works at a small market, in San Diego says, she saw Elizabeth Smart and the others several times. But, that only today when she saw news reports, Elizabeth had been found, she realized the girl she saw, in San Diego was indeed Elizabeth.
