Elizabeth Smart's Message to Jaycee Dugard

ABC News Consultant Elizabeth Smart, 23, who was abducted at 14 from her Salt Lake City home and held captive for nine months in 2002, has a message for fellow kidnap survivor Jaycee Dugard, who recently shared her 18-year ordeal in a new book and in an exclusive interview with Diane Sawyer.

Smart told "Good Morning America" Thursday what she would say to Jaycee if they were to meet. "I would tell her how much I admire her, for her courage, her strength. She is certainly to be admired for her coming out and not living in the shadow of her past."

Smart is currently a student at Brigham Young University.
