Find all Riley thanks for watching us and I -- the bizarre kidnapping case in Ohio and what it says about America that is a subject of this evening's talking points memo.
Yesterday police in Cleveland received a 911 call.
We need police fire ambulance.
I think it's.
Worked under -- OK okay yeah.
Please keep your yeah who went out and I'm yeah the end of the hey -- -- and how do you like that people who.
Sorry can't really even a little familiarity and let her -- -- -- we'll hear this.
That I call led police to a small home -- they discovered the caller 27 year old Amanda -- as well as two other women.
23 year old Gina did races and 32 year old Michelle night there were all kidnapped about ten years ago allegedly by three Brothers.
This very as a six year old child was also removed from the house.
The man mentioned in the 911 call aerial Castro -- the home and is a former school bus driver.
-- arrested for domestic violence in 1993 but not indict.
-- -- Brothers Pedro and O'Neill are also involved in the abduction according to police.
The story is amazing because he kidnapped girls were held captive in the middle of a dense neighborhood.
Been here a year ago he's not around.
But what you would it would do we eat ribs and in what listen to solve the music September.
And -- no indication -- there.
Road not a clue that that girl what was in that house -- anybody out -- against their will because how he.
Is that he has come up to his back yard -- with adult -- what is cars and motorcycles go back in the house.
So he's somebody you look at you looked away because he's not doing look at.
Now the wider implications these guys' academics are rare the FBI says that in 2012 just 411.
Americans were abducted by a stranger.
But the impact of children and young people disappear.
Is enormous on the public psyche.
Elizabeth Smart case you talk on tomorrow.
Chances are when -- -- child your parents let you go out to play unsupervised minded I was out of the house for hours especially in the summer.
But today American children are constantly under supervision with play dates and organize activities almost all the time.
Rarely -- children away from their homes on their all even most teenagers are not afforded that freedom.
American parents are simply fright they believe children are at risk in public.
That of course is a shame because playing on your -- develops creativity independents and social problem solving skills.
The big mystery and Ohio is this how -- three women be held against their will in a suburb for all -- time.
Early indications are they will brutalized and complete explanations of what happened will soon be forthcoming.
Obviously the crimes heinous and -- and re enforce a perception that although America is a free country we are also a dangerous nation.
The reality is that kidnapping is -- for rare but there are some very bad people walking the streets of the USA.
The crime in Ohio.
Is another cautionary tale.
And some of them now -- the top story tonight what is going on with the investigation into the three alleged kidnappers you know fox anchor.
Bill Hemmer is recovering the story building let's begin with the -- the girls all right.
The three of them won the ages when they were conducting.
Michelle Knight was 1810.
Amanda bear that was -- As of 2000 -- is that picture back about eleven years -- the very was sixteen she was abducted eight months after the first one disappeared.
And then Jeter to Asus was a seventh graders who about the age fourteen -- April 2004 there -- twelve months apart and they all lived in this in and same neighborhood right in his relatively speaking yes they were all of -- to bill about three and a half no more than four miles away.
From the home where they were found that there has been controversy that the police categorize these crimes as runaways -- and kidnappings and therefore did not.
Actively look for -- girls what do you know bomb here's what we can report about that tonight in the first case Michelle night have a son.
And apparently there was a custody dispute.
And she was very upset as one can imagine the family says they were talked into it by police that she was a runaway.
The mother never believed it.
She fought every day to put fliers up all over the neighborhood never thought about.
For a moment that her daughter would run away.
There is no AMBER Alert put out for this first girl I used it well either run for the -- when we talk about that around forty years old -- less than that that you younger girls that initially they thoughts that Amanda.
Who disappeared eight months later now but I did that was a runaway also but that was quickly dismissed because someone called her mom using her cell phone.
Instead that Amanda would return home and a couple days and after that phone call was made.
That's when police moved it away from a runaway case to.
I'm missing person in the seventh grader the seventh grader was picked up around that same spot.
One year later.
And there are reports late tonight that suggesting get this now.
That the man who owned that home night who bought it 1992 for 121000 dollars.
Tom may have known this woman's father all right.
So the three girls are in the home and now we hear reports -- may have been another woman in the home who disappeared.
What do you know about that I speaking with our fox affiliate channel -- in Cleveland Ohio just a short time ago and this this is disturbing stuff.
-- multiple police sources saying that there were three women pregnant multiple times.
It's not clear -- more than one child was born but the first abduction Michelle night.
She says she was struck over the head.
She may also have structural damage to her face.
Hearing loss is a possibility as well.
And she told police when she was first picked up.
There is another woman.
Inside the home.
Who disappeared at at some point -- it's unclear whether it was after.
A couple days or weeks months or even years after that and there is a name apparently on the wall in this basement has not been made public yet the name has not.
That's it rest in peace and that represented the names are not used to the three girls born three women and now they're in a safe house being interviewed by not only the local authorities but the FBI because -- -- Kidnapping is a federal offense.
The suspects all been picked up.
To be charged Shia here's the -- Ohio.
After an arrest -- 36 hours and I would expect if it doesn't come late tonight by noon tomorrow we should get a pretty good idea charges.
And the reason why that's important is because police told us earlier today this press conference.
That wait for the charges you learn a lot more they come out and I expected to be the case tried I think you're going to be murder charges here -- amid -- is these guys are you know.
It if there were multiple babies born and again one baby was taken out of the house the child of bear in -- -- But if there were multiple babies and -- they killed.
It's possible and probable we we don't know you don't you don't take a woman -- for an abortion in a hospital or a clinic if you've got them tied into the basement.
And let me just add one -- because what police said is that they are interested.
In other properties as well -- now what does that mean.
You know what other homes of the Brothers -- -- got a little cellular charges could come as a result of that back what what was inside the song there -- -- baseman bill 760 square feet.
It in is that we're all this transpired in the past ten years had to be easier the next to a neighbor.
And we believe that the neighbors didn't -- about a window into what's interesting about that is that police said not a single neighbor reporter -- at the home.
In ten years.
Nobody enlisted go to the home if they did but but no neighbor reported any problems with him or anything inside the house and -- -- why did the police go to the home.
They were told that he was a bus driver.
Castro -- -- yeah -- aged fifty -- now right and he left a child unattended on a school bus and they went to his house to question about it.
Apparently wasn't home of the time and they -- they later questioned him and thought there's nothing suspicious about it.
I know earlier today you had neighbors come out and say that they heard rapping on on a door or window.
There was one report that suggests a native almost crawling -- the backyard.
I don't know where those reports ago we will but we'll find out yeah we'll find out.
All right bill we appreciate it thanks very much that's on Iraq.
