Elizabeth Smart overjoyed to hear of women

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Elizabeth Smart says she’s overjoyed to hear about the happy ending for the Cleveland women who escaped Monday after being missing a decade.

Smart said Tuesday on ABC’s Good Morning America (http://abcn.ws/YrUx5k ) that the ordeal highlights the importance of the public staying alert and vigilant. She advised the women to focus on moving forward and let go of the past. Smart says it’s also important for others to respect the privacy of those women as they recover from the decade-long ordeal.

Smart was kidnapped from her bedroom in Salt Lake City when she was 14. She was freed nine months later when she was found walking with her captor on a suburban street in March 2003.

On Monday in downtown Cleveland, three women who vanished a decade ago were found.
