Girl Talks About 4 Days Missing in FL Swamp

Ad Feedback

The 11-year-old autistic girl who went missing for four days in a Florida swamp recently talked about the ordeal.

Speaking in front of her church family, Sunday, Nadia Bloom said while she was lost, she slept in a hollow log and tried eating plants.

"You wouldn't believe what I saw," she said. "I got to see a snake. I kept my distance from it, fortunately."

Volunteers, helicopters and rescue dogs spent hours searching for the girl, who has a mild form of autism. It was church member James King who eventually found her.

King credited God for Nadia's safe return, and so do family and friends.

"We just wanted to say thank you so, so much. This was the hardest thing we ever had to go through," mother, Tanya Bloom, said.

"Every once in a while God gives you a ray of sunshine that comes blasting through and once in a while it's a big ray of sunshine," Covenant Community Church pastor Jeff Dixon added.
