50th anniversary of the kidnapping of Peggy Ann Bradnick-Jackson


More than 50-years after a Fulton County woman was kidnapped, she was hailed as a hero by the local historical society on Saturday evening. 

The Fulton County Historical Society hosted a ceremony to remember the kidnapping of Peggy Ann Bradnick-Jackson on Saturday evening.

Bradnick-Jackson was kidnapped by William Diller Hollenbaugh and was held captive for eight days.

More than 1,000 people searched for her until she was rescued by police.

She said she wants to bring awareness towards kidnappings and how they relate to mental illness.

“God hasn’t told me that I have to quit. I have to praise him everyday of my life and take every opportunity that he gives me to glorify him and make sure that everyone who was involved in this case in one way or another gets thanked properly by me,” Bradnick-Jackson said, 

On May 17th a memorial will be held in Harrisburg for Terry Anderson, a FBI agent who was shot and killed by Hollenbaugh, in the search for Bradnick-Jackson.
