Marking 4 Years Since the "Seymour Survivors" Escape

CLEVELAND, OH - Today marks four years since three young women were found alive after being kidnapped and held captive for more than ten years on Cleveland's west side. 

On May 6, 2013, Amanda Berry, with help, was able to get out of the house she was being held captive in on Seymour Avenue and called police.

"I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for ten years and I'm here, I'm free now," Berry told a dispatcher in the now famous 911 recording. 

Police arrived and Berry, her young daughter, Michelle knight and Gina DeJesus were now free. It made international news, television networks descended on Cleveland. 

It's a story of hope that many are still clinging to four years later, hoping to see their missing loved ones again.
