CLEVELAND, Ohio — Charles Ramsey, a neighbor, helped rescue three missing women found alive in Cleveland on Monday.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were found Monday years after they went missing.
“I’ve been kidnapped,” Berry, who disappeared a decade ago, told a 911 dispatcher after calling from Ramsey’s home. “I’ve been missing for 10 years and I’m out here. I’m free now.”
Berry and two other women, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight, went missing between 2000 and 2004 in separate incidents. The women were all between the ages of 14 and 20 when they vanished.
Neighbors and relatives celebrated the happy ending, but for some, the years had taken their toll. Berry’s mother died in 2006, not knowing whether her daughter was alive or dead.
