January 20, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
Elizabeth Smart has announced her engagement.

Smart, 24, was kidnapped from her home in Utah and held captive for nine months 10 years ago.

A spokesman says Smart got engaged last weekend and will likely marry in the summer. He didn't give any details about the groom-to-be, saying Smart wanted to keep her personal life private.

But her father reportedly approves. Ed Smart says his future son-in-law is a fine young man.
