Samantha, 20, was abducted and raped herself in October 2006.
Along with boyfriend Steven Walker, 24, she now works to prevent other young girls suffering the same fate.

Police: Man used Facebook to arrange sex with girls
By Stephen Herzog, News-Leader
Prosecutors say a Springfield man “systematically preyed on underage girls,” using social media to arrange sexual encounters.
Tyler Nelson Coons, 23, was charged earlier this month with 10 different sex crimes involving young girls.
The charges were filed after multiple police investigations. According to a search warrant affidavit filed last month, Coons “has been listed as a suspect or person of interest in several Springfield Police Department cases involving inappropriate acts or conversations with juveniles.”
Police say they received a report last month from a man who said Coons was sending his 11-year-old daughter inappropriate messages on Facebook. Coons reportedly told the girl he was 14.
The father told police he logged onto his daughter’s Facebook account, and acting as his daughter, sent messages to Coons to meet at an elementary school playground.
When the father met Coons, Coons said he was a man named Frank and that he was 19. The man told Coons not to have any more contact with his daughter.
The daughter later reportedly said during a forensic interview that Coons had sent her messages including “inappropriate things about sex that really grossed me out.” [READ FULL STORY]
