A Deleted Scene From 'Abducted In Plain Sight' Will Change How You View The Story
While there are so many difficult things to get to grips in Netflix's Abducted In Plain Sight, one of the biggest concerns is why didn't the parents Bob and Mary Ann Broberg do more to get their daughter back? Well, it turns out there's a scene that didn't quite make the cut, and it goes a long way to explaining it...
If you haven't already seen the downright bizarre film, it follows the life of Jan Broberg, who was abducted not once, but twice, by family friend Robert 'B' Berchtold in the 1970s.
B gained access to Jan by befriending her parents and becoming a father-like figure to Jan and her sisters, which is how the Broberg family seemingly remained so oblivious to all the abuse that was taking place.
The second time Jan was snatched, it seemed like her family were doing nothing to get her back. They took nearly a week to contact the FBI and they were in regular contact with B, but they didn't seem to be doing anything.
However, a deleted scene from the documentary has revealed that Mary Ann had planned to meet B in the car park with her son, and they brought a shot gun with them - which would suggest they were actually willing to do a hell of a lot to get their daughter back.
The scene was apparently left out because it was such a huge twist in an already convoluted story, which was obviously difficult to fit into an hour-and-a-half documentary.
Director Skye Borgman told Vanity Fair she would be up for doing a sequel to the controversial film to "explore the different topics that we didn't have time to really dive deep into, like the role that faith plays."
On behalf of all Netflix customers, please get working on that sequel right away.
