Elizabeth Smart has been hired by ABC News to work as a commentator on missing persons and child abduction cases. The 23-year-old BYU music student is expected to begin work within the next few weeks. Brian David Mitchell, who abducted Smart in 2002, is currently serving a life sentence after being convicted on charges of kidnapping and rape last December.
