The nightmare for three missing women and their families finally came to end Monday night after one of them was able to escape and call 911.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight, abducted in separate instances during the early 2000s, were held captive for more than 10 years and presumed dead.
“I’ve been kidnapped and I’ve been missing for 10 years and I’m, I’m here, I’m free now,” Berry told the 911 dispatcher.
Berry alerted a neighbor when she broke free and he helped kick down a door to get to her. The neighbor, who had lived there for a year, never suspected anything.
“Not a clue that that girl was in the house or anybody else was in there against their will because he just comes out to his backyard, plays with the dogs, tinkering with his cars and motorcycles, and goes back into the house,” he told a reporter.
“So he’s somebody you look and look away because he’s not doing nothing but the average stuff. You see what I’m saying? Nothing exciting about him! Well, until today.”
Police have arrested three brothers, ages 50-54 in connection with the kidnapping.
Thankfully, all three women and a 6-year-old child were found in good condition and released from the hospital Tuesday morning.
