10. Katie Beers
Katie Beers was kidnapped a day before her 10th birthday and held for 17 days in a soundproof underground bunker. The bunker was constructed by John Esposito, 43, who took the child from a Nesconset arcade and chained her by her neck in a box. The Bay Shore contractor was later convicted of kidnapping and sexually abusing Beers. The case received nation-wide attention and a book was even written about the crime.
