SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The only witness to the abduction of Elizabeth Smart is telling her story to ABC News/Primetime" during an interview tomorrow night.

Mary Katherine Smart says she stayed in the shared bedroom for two hours after Elizabeth was taken because she was scared the man would come back and take her, too.

She says she had to stay quiet and safe so she could tell her parents what happened.

Mary Katherine then tells her father, Ed Smart, that Elizabeth was gone. He went rushing to the bedroom, but Mary Katherine recalls telling him, "You're not going to find her."

She also admits she does NOT know how Elizabeth remained calm when a man took her. Mary Katherine says she would have screamed her head off.
