A good end to a terrible story. Gina and Amanda have been missing for what seems like a lifetime, they dominated the local news for years and most gave up hope of finding them.....The woman's voice was frantic and breathless, and she was choking back tears. "Help me. I'm Amanda Berry," she told a 911 dispatcher. "I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years and I'm, I'm here, I'm free now."
Those words led police to a house near downtown Cleveland where Berry and two other women who vanished a decade ago were found Monday, elating family members and friends who had longed to see them again.
Authorities later arrested three brothers. They released no names and gave no information about them or what charges they might face.
So glad to hear that they both, along with a third woman Michelle Knight, were found alive. She was written off because she was 20 when she disappeared, but it goes to show you, never give up hope.
News reports indicate that the house had chains in the basement hanging from the ceiling, and investigators are digging up the backyard.
