          October 5, 2017

          “I’m strapped with my wrists and my ankles to the back of the motor home bed. There’s a box right next to my ear,” Broberg recalls of the incident that occurred in 1974. “It’s talking to me in a high pitched monotone voice … I thought I’d been kidnapped by a UFO.”

          The actress, known for roles in the television shows Everwood and Criminal Minds, was abducted by Robert Berchtold, a good friend of her family’s. She says it was two days before she saw Berchtold again, who convinced her they had been abducted by aliens and needed to complete a mission. She says he took her to Mexico for five weeks during which time she claims she was brainwashed.

          “I would come to him and I would say, ‘The box said that we’re supposed to do the thing that makes people happy. We’re supposed to have a child. I’m supposed to have the child to save the dying planet,’” Broberg says during an appearance on Dr. Phil airing Tuesday. “It said, ‘If you don’t follow all of our rules, you will be evaporated. You will be killed, and your little sister will be taken.’”
