Is Believe Me: The Abduction of Lisa McVey a true story?
Sadly this horrifying tale is a true story.
In 1984 17-year-old Lisa suffered sexual and emotional abuse at the hands of her grandmother's boyfriend, which led to her feeling suicidal before her abduction, but her harrowing ordeal gave her a new determination to survive.
McVey was kidnapped by serial Bobby Long on November 3, 1984 as she cycled home from her job at a doughnut shop in the early hours of the morning.
Long held her at gunpoint for 26 hours and continually raped her, but Lisa's calm demeanour and quick thinking meant that she was able to persuade Long to let her go and gather clues that would lead to his arrest.
