Dramatic moment Utah sisters who were kidnapped by their father are rescued from freezing water barrels and trailers where they were being hidden by polygamist cult leader along with his own two daughters
Fresh details of how two young Utah sisters were rescued in the dark on a remote polygamist compound after being kidnapped by their father have emerged.
Dinah Coltharp (above), eight, and Hattie Coltharp (below), four, were rescued by police in Lund on Monday after a highly publicized amber alert search.
The girls were taken by their father, John, and had been handed over to his friend Samuel Shaffer who hid them on the compound when the amber alert was issued on Monday. It is feared they were to be married off to cult leader Shaffer.
When police raided the site, they also discovered Shaffer’s two young daughters, Lily, seven, and Samantha, five, who had not been reported missing.
