It's a shame one of the girls' mothers passed away a while back w/o ever knowing she was alive. I'm so happy of this great outcome though, John Walsh said the likelihood of them being found alive after so long is miniscule (don't quote me but that was the gist of what he said last nite).

Apparently neighbours had called the police about strange activities at the house, and all the police did was knock on the door for 8 minutes, and when no one answered, they left. That's all! The police are going to have to answer for this one.

First off I'm glad that these women were found alive...

Second: The 911 operator should be fired for her incompetence-it is standared procedure to stay on the line with a victim until help arrives....

The neighbor was great getting involved when he saw one of the women trying to get out of the house-

I really hope they can put their lives back together.

What a wonderful ending to about as horrible story as one could hear. I certainly hope these kidnappers never see the light of day from beyond prison again.

When I listen to the 911 tapes though. I can't really say I'm impressed with the 911 operators in such a situation. They just didn't seem completely interested, or I don't know they just could have put more into their response.

Wonderful news that gives other parents with missing children hope. I have heard so many 911 calls where the operator needs to be working at the McDonald's drive-thru but your order will probably be wrong. I thought they were suppose to stay on the line with the caller until either the police or ambulance arrived. Some operators I have heard have attempted to calm the caller down as they wait for help. The police really screwed up in 2011.

They need to execute these three pieces of slime.

Who here thinks that the best punishment would be to lock these perverts in a room with the victims' Dads?


Should take only five, maybe ten minutes tops.

Thank God the three women and their kids are alive!

I suspect Lifetime will do a movie about their situation - filmed in Canada with American flags as props, natch!

What's worse than being kidnapped and held captive for over ten years?
Finally escaping, calling 911, and getting the worst 911 operator ever.

She's was like "yeah yeah, you already told me that" and kept trying to brush her off and get her off the phone. Whatever happened to "I'll stay on the phone with you until the police get there"? The operator alternated between utter indifference and asking inane questions "what was this man wearing?" Who the heck cares what he was wearing!!! She's giving you his name and his address where she was held for 10 years!

I'm from Cleveland and remember when Gina and Amanda went missing, I'm so glad they found them!!!!!! Never heard about Michelle Knight before today, which greatly disturbs me.
