(KSL News) Elizabeth Smart was in Washington, D.C., today joining three other kidnapping victims and representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice to release a new guide designed to help people who have been abducted.

Smart and the other victims helped write the guide, titled "You're Not Alone," which was presented during a special ceremony today.

"They shared their thoughts, feelings and insights of the personal journeys of the days, weeks and months after their return home in the hopes that they could offer comfort to other children," said U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey.

The presentation was part of National Missing Children's Day. Officials also recognized law enforcement officials who contributed to the AMBER Alert program.
