I think I might have seen this before. I don't think the kidnap was master minded by someone else. It seems her friend Julie thinks that there was someone else running the whole thing and there was a higher plan and someone controlling her. Did anyone else see it?
From what I remember it seemed as if she planned it with the man who hid her because her bf was a pedo and she didn't like how we was around the kids. She wanted to leave him apparently. I think she explained it in the back of the police car. She definitely was a bit thick.
