But did not call him

The 16-year-old California girl who was kidnapped by a family friend clarified some details Thursday about her relationship with her kidnapper, including that they exchanged texts beforehand, not phone calls as police have said, and that they wrote each other letters a year ago when she wasn't getting along with her mother.

The girl, Hannah Anderson, was kidnapped by family friend James Lee DiMaggio on Aug. 4 after he killed her mother and Hannah's 8-year-old brother at his rural house east of San Diego and fled with the teen, authorities have said. DiMaggio was killed days later in a shootout with authorities during which Anderson was rescued, and his home was found burned down.
