Dee Snider‘s 23-year-old daughter Chey is safe and back at home after being stuck in Peru amid travel bans across the globe.
Page Six reports that Chey was alone in northeastern Peru on a spiritual retreat when the pandemic hit and she was stuck in the country.
Dee says that she was rescued by the US Embassy and given a military security detail to bring her to the airport, where a chartered plane took her, and some other Americans, to Miami. He says it took two weeks to get her home.
“My publicist… just happened to go to camp with the son of [former Secretary of Homeland Security] Tom Ridge… He was able to help get my daughter out,” he told the outlet. “The first thing she sent [when she was back in the US] was a picture of her at Miami airport. She was in a too-cool-for-school pose. And I said, ‘You know what — I’m so grateful to see that attitude because it could’ve been stolen from her by bad people.”
