Abducted In Plain Sight is a Netflix Original Documentary series. Revolving around the life of Actress Jan Broberg; the chilling narrative has sent the world into a horrified state.
The documentary shows the kidnapping of young Jan by a family friend called Robert ‘B’ Berchtold. What’s chilling about this is the fact that the man had kidnapped her twice in her lifetime. Well, if you thought that was shocking, here’s where it gets worse. Post the incident that left Jan traumatized, her parents remained passive about the entire thing and chose not to speak to anyone about it.
Set in the 1970’s, Paedophile Robert ‘B’ Berchtold befriended the Broberg family. Little did the family know what his true intentions were, until years later. What is morbid about the entire episode is how the child’s parents turned a bind eye to what was obviously taking place right in front of their eyes.
Jan Broberg was a little above 10 years of age when Berchtold met her. Ignorant of his sexual advances towards her, the child wandered into the predators trap much like a fawn with no protection.
Turns out, Robert was quite the manipulator and used dirty tricks to earn Jan’s parents’ trust. He was their handyman, as they call it now.
Upon Jan going missing for the second time, her parents finally took legal action. The predator however had a trick up his sleeve. Unfortunately, both Jan’s mother and father had entertained an affair with Berchtold. The man cleverly used this to blackmail them into withdrawing their complaint on him.
The plot gets worse
It just gets weirder folks. The documentary shows a now adult Jan Broberg, horrifically recollect the gory abuse she suffered. Upon turning a teenager, she said, Robert even built a wooden wall in the room for her, seperating her mother and her. Jan’s mother was seen crying at what took place.

The man slept in the same bed as young Jan for months. He did this right before abducting her. Apparently, he tricked the parents into thinking that he’s taking her horseback riding.
Okay now, brace yourselves. Robert even convinced Jan, that she needs to have his baby when she turns sixteen. Failing which, it would result in the loss of her sister’s eyes and destruction of the world. He manipulated the child into thinking she was abnormal, and that, aliens were watching her.
The world reacts
The stupefying series has left quite a few around the globe, stunned, shocked, disgusted, angry and what not! One twitter user summed up her entire experience of watching this in a tweet.
This is insane. Abducted in Plain Sight is infuriating. Those parents knew exactly what was going on but were getting their egos stroked by this pedophile. And that felt better than the knowledge of what was happening to their daughter felt bad. Hearing this babies voice …— RoxxyBaBOG (@RoxxySoFoxxyBAB) January 18, 2019

Some even hailed it as an informative watch regarding the extent paedophiles go to for a child.
@Netflix For those on the fence about R. Kelly, you need to watch “Abducted in Plain Sight”. It is a Netflix documentary that depicts in great detail the lenghts a PEDOPHILE will go through to get a child and their M.O. #muterkelly #Netflix #PEDOPHILE #abductedinplainsightBarbara Hibbert on Twitter
