Three young women kidnapped individually over a decade ago in Cleveland have been found ALiVE and well
Amanda Berry who went missing in 2003 at the age of 13 managed to get up in to the top of the house when her captor was out and call out to the neighbour, to call the police.
The other women were kidnapped in 2000 and 2004
I can only imagine how delighted there families are to have then back when they surely must have feared them dead

What a wonderful outcome altho these women will have a lot to adjust to, especially the one with a child. They must have been through such terror and turmoil, but hope they can with help turn their lives around and live happy lives in future.

It's sad that Amanda's mother died three years after Amanda was taken, the stress probably caused her death. I hope all the women have lots of support from family and friends and whatever else they need.

Tragic that 10 years have been taken from there lives, but wonderful that at last they have been found.

Hearing this news must give hope to all to other parents, who's children have been kidnapped, and never found, Ben Needham, and Madeleine McCanns. parents come straight to mind.

For your children to be there on minute and gone the next, isn't something you even want to think about .

The more I see and hear about this story the more bizarre it becomes, incredible.

But what good news :-D

Stories like this really touch the heart - not knowing what happens to your child is worse than a death - all so incredible
