Melissa Reed was a proud fiancee applying for what she thought was a routine marriage license two weeks ago when she learned a stunning secret: She had been abducted as a child and living under an assumed name.
"I learned the reason that for all these years I have not had a proper ID or valid Social Security number for 'Melissa Reed' and why I could not get a driver's license, bank account, passport or travel by plane, all because of my assumed name," she said.
Fiedler said in her affidavit she had custody of her daughter at the time, but authorities in New Jersey claim otherwise.
