The Lifetime original movie Abducted: The Carlina White Story is based on a remarkable true story that made national headlines not once, but twice. Growing up, Carlina White yearned for a strong bond with her mother, but after years of failed attempts, Carlina sensed something was terribly wrong. A personal investigation led to life-changing results. Not only did Carlina discover that the woman raising her was not her biological mother, but that she had kidnapped Carlina as an infant from Harlem Hospital in New York. The first known infant abduction from a New York hospital made news at the time, but Carlina's emergence 23 years later created even bigger headlines.
