BOISE -- Sixteen-year-old Hannah Anderson, the girl who was found in Idaho's backcountry after being kidnapped from her home in San Diego, will be on the Today Show Thursday morning.

She's speaking out about her ordeal exclusively with Savannah Guthrie, but that's not all.

In the segment that was taped last week, she also had a big surprise waiting. The four Idaho horseback riders who are credited with alerting authorities and prompting her rescue were there too.

Christa John is one of those riders, from Sweet, Idaho. She stopped by to tell us about the moment when they finally got to officially meet and hug Hannah.

The Today Show can be seen on KTVB Idaho's Newschannel 7 starting at 7 a.m.
