Woman reunites with family years after kidnapping

An Oakland woman kidnapped when she was just 5-years-old is spending her first Christmas with long-lost family members in more than a half-century.

A neighbor kidnapped Dollie Henson in her native Texas 55 years ago.

Just last month, a news story about the kidnapping on the ABC station in Houston caught the attention of her family and they were reunited.

Friday, they got to celebrate Christmas together; a reunion made bitter-sweet with the realization her mother had died seven years earlier, leaving many questions about her childhood unanswered.

Even more family flew in Friday so many came for the reunion they even thought about possibly booking a dining hall for the night.
