But sources said that before the confrontation, authorities had observed DiMaggio moving some wood and other materials around, possibly to fortify his position or make the hideout harder to see from the air.DiMaggio and Anderson were found with some camp gear, including a blue tent, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment.Anderson was unharmed but taken to a hospital for observation. Her abductor was fatally shot by an FBI agent.“I am nervous, excited and saddened for my wife and son and worried what my daughter has been through,” said Brett Anderson, Hannah’s father, said in a text sent to CNN. “It’s now healing time. Keep us in your prayers.”Jennifer Willis, Hannah’s great aunt, told ABC she can’t wait to see her. “We’re waiting, waiting for Hannah to come home,” she said.last_img
