Teens missing for years found alive in Ohio

Cleveland police: Missing teens Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus found alive, appear to be OK

CLEVELAND - Cleveland police said missing teens Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and a third woman were found in a west side house on Monday.

Hundreds of people gathered in the streets near 2207 Seymour Avenue in Cleveland, where the women were discovered. Cleveland police said Berry, DeJesus and Michelle Knight are alive, talking and appear to be OK.

“I heard screaming… And I see this girl going nuts trying to get outside,” said Charles, a neighbor would found the women. “I go on the porch and she said ‘Help me get out. I’ve been here a long time.’ I figure it was domestic violence dispute."

“She comes out with a little girl and says ‘Call 911, my name is Amanda Berry’… When she told me, it didn’t register.” He said he made the call and gave Berry the phone. When police arrived, officers asked him if he knew who he rescued.

A witness who spoke Spanish told NewsChannel5's Stephanie Ramirez that he helped break down the door. He said there was a child who was about 4 or 5 years old with Berry, as well as other children inside the house. He said he recognized Berry from posters.

Officers have a suspect in custody. There will be a media briefing Tuesday morning.

Three teens kidnapped and

Three teenage girls kidnapped and held hostage by three brothers, at least one of the girls impregnated during their captivity.

I'm reminded of the movie "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers".

That's the one where the seven sons of a motherless pioneer family, inspired by reading the Rape of the Sabines, kidnap seven young women to their family holding at the start of winter (triggering an avalanche to block pursuit until spring). They end up with seven love affairs, then seven shotgun weddings rather than seven hangings, thanks to a baby born about the time the townsfolk make it through the pass in the spring and every one of the girls claiming it's hers.

It struck me as extremely unrealistic at the time. I wonder if the three brothers were similarly inspired by this Hollywood fantasy.

Great news!

I have been praying for a breakthrough in human trafficing that I believe is highly organized by powerful people. I hope their house of cards comes down on them as though it was a house of bricks. No more of this abuse. I'm praying that some good cops don't let this case get taken over by special corrupt law enforcement units. This house in Cleveland is a trailhead to some ugly places. Hunt these criminals down like the animals they are.


Anyone reading the comments section. This is just unbelievable. The guy that found them said he would eat barbecue with this guy and never knew he had these girls in his house. There are a few others that have gone missing. maybe this creep knows where they are. My feeling this is some kid of human trafficking case.

Maybe they get moved around?
