SHAWNEE, Oklahoma -

She fought for her life to escape her kidnappers. Now we are hearing from that brave teenager in her own words about that terrifying day.

It was less than two weeks ago, on November 7, that a 15-year-old girl was walking down the sidewalk along W. Ford Street, on her way to the high school, when out of nowhere, two men in a black van jumped out and grabbed her.

"My life literally flashed before my eyes," said the teenager, whose name we are withholding for her safety. "I thought I was going to die that day."

That is the first thought the teenager had when struggling with her kidnappers. She didn't want to show her face, but she did want to share her story.

"I was in the van and the white guy had my hands down," recalled the teenager. "I was on my side, and then the Hispanic man laid on top of me, he took over my hands."

On Tuesday, she met with the OSBI, who created two composite sketches of the kidnappers, based on her description of them.

Police are also looking for a third man who was driving the van.

"I don't know how long I was in the car, but it seemed like forever," she said.

This teenager says while walking down the sidewalk, she had an eerie feeling when she first noticed the van. Little did she know how right she was.

But fortunately her parents taught her how to fight back. And she did.

"Anything I could, like grab, or bite, or pinch or pull, I was going for it," the teenager remembered.

She said she managed to break free of her kidnappers, get out of the van, and run home. She said the thing that kept her fighting for her life was the desire to see her friends and family again.

"They need me, and I still need them," said the brave teen. "So I'm going to do anything in my power to see them again."

The kidnapping happened just a block away from Jefferson Elementary School, and the teen is just glad it was her and not a young child who was attacked.

"I knew what to do in that position, but a little girl wouldn't be able to lift a full grown man off of her." She said.

The teenager told News 9 the one thing she's learned out of this is that you should never go anywhere alone. She encourages parents out there to teach your children to fight for their lives, no matter what.
