CASCADE, Idaho

Law enforcement officials in Idaho say they are making sure Hannah Anderson is getting the physical and emotional care she needs after a harrowing weeklong search ended in the wilderness yesterday with her rescue and the death of the man who apparently kidnapped her.

FBI agents first spotted the California teen and James DiMaggio from the air, then moved in on their campsite.

DiMaggio is suspected of killing Anderson's mother and brother, who were found in his burning house outside San Diego last week.

The 16-year-old appeared to be uninjured and is expected to be reunited with her father today. She has been recuperating in an Idaho hospital.

The FBI is sending investigators to try to fill in the details about the ordeal. DiMaggio was a friend of the Anderson family, and Hannah's father says the children thought of him as an uncle
