Steffy Forrester was presumed dead and kidnapped.

In this week’s Throwback Thursday Soaps.com takes readers back to 2001 when Morgan DeWitt kidnapped Steffy Forrester and allowed everyone to believe she had died…

Steffy’s life was consumed with drama way before her adult years… Morgan DeWitt (Sarah Buxton) became pregnant with Ridge Forrester’s child. Though Stephanie and Ridge pleaded with Morgan to abort the baby, she refused. During an argument with Taylor, Morgan grabbed her arm, but Taylor shook her off. Morgan took a hard fall and ended up losing her baby.

Devastated, Morgan followed the Forresters on a family trip and kidnapped a two-year old Steffy – not only to have Ridge’s child, but she wanted the twin who was named after Stephanie, as a way to make the woman suffer, considering Stephanie convinced Morgan to abort another baby she had with Ridge back in the 1980s.

Steffy’s family thought she had died. It wasn’t until later when Taylor was taken captive by Morgan that she learned her daughter was alive. Ridge found a photo Steffy had drawn in Morgan’s possession, became suspicious and drove through Morgan’s house to save his family. “Y&R’s” Dr. Tim Reid, a friend of Morgan’s, helped her go on the run until she was caught after showing up at a Forrester party.
