-- -- -- Well are you.
I'm glad you said you -- -- being the book it would -- -- the we and -- report you.
-- -- Did a little bit earlier your baby.
We hadn't since then.
Led you and but you -- Another food Q.
And was a man who would find that her -- passed away it's gotta be tough.
That was Amanda various grandmother is a two spoke for the first time since her disappearance touching reunion.
More to come knows -- families come.
We're still so much more to learn police intensifying their search the Cleveland home.
And here's an important fact other nearby properties.
This afterward there could be more victims including babies born or miss carried she uses.
To the three women who escaped.
The oldest victim Michelle Knight reportedly told police that there was another girl there when she was first kidnapped she disappeared.
There are also new reports of the women having had babies for miscarriages but of course that.
-- surviving child that we know of at this time is a six year old the belongs to a man to bury the father unknown but probably one of those three accused -- Right -- -- on the investigation police are com.
Missing persons cases right now let's talk to Rod Wheeler.
Former homicide detective and also an Ohio native -- you know what you know what we we're hearing from Michelle night she is.
The woman who we believe was -- first she said when I first got in the house there's another girl there who -- a threat they've they've.
Look into the past and there was a girl who went missing about that time in 2007 actually Summers a fourteen year old.
I thought to be initially a runaway.
Is that the kind of is that the kind of lead they should be looking at right now.
Well Steve that's exactly what they're looking at as a matter of fact just add a little bit more to that -- recent information that I found out from my sources in Cleveland Ohio where you know I grew up in Cleveland.
I'm I'm learning that there -- about two or three other individuals that went missing right around 20072008.
That the police are trying to see if there's any correlation with these other missing females right around the same age.
Right around that same time so I think they're looking at all of that incidentally they also found in the basement of that home -- -- sovereign even report it.
There was the initials are IP which stands for rest in peace.
And they had another female names you -- and underneath that our IP -- the question for us as investigators -- who would that person and if you notice yesterday they were digging around the house quite a bit.
Yeah I also see that the the all three were abducted around the same area.
In -- around that burger King and I understand and -- is always thought there was a link with the three disappearances.
Well they did and you know what -- -- as a matter of fact that Burger King I'm very familiar with and I've been to that Burger King at the very.
Hot spot if you will and that -- in that area -- Lorain avenue off of what Sony that street.
And a lot of people are in that area it's a very busy area there's a lot of residences and a lot of businesses so a lot of opportunity.
For somebody to do what these three guys have done.
I'm not to mention also that aerial -- was a bus driver and it was also on the same route content coming from the middle school so we get playing opportunity to.
-- the area and possibly seeing these girls walking back and forth from work but here's what I wanna bring your attention to -- This morning.
It was posted -- line the number of missing people right now just in the Cleveland area and it's been a big debate in the last 24 hours about the difference between a missing person.
And somebody who's actually abducted and what really jumped out at me when I was looking at this list of about seventy people.
With that I would say -- -- ten to fifteen of these missing people in Cleveland -- where women girls between the ages of fourteen.
Is that right nor mold and you thought if we -- in this resurgent every big town without being normal and and are they gonna look at all those missing girls now.
Yeah Gretchen and that's a good question and you know unfortunately that is the normal age range stuff for missing people girls between those that a drain so they are looking at each and every one -- -- -- Cleveland -- right outside -- Cleveland in the Akron area.
You know these are areas that's easily accessible to anybody in the Cleveland area so they are gonna look at that -- -- but if you look across the country you will see that statistic all over the country.
Up about that age range right -- -- one other thing about this particular case the bus driver aerial Castro.
Apparently according to that's -- new sources in Cleveland apparently.
His family had a connection to all of the missing girls which could explain how.
You know he first in her face with them when he first abducted them.
That's right well you know according to some of the published reports yesterday.
The father I believe of Amanda -- you know one of the girls was in the same -- he played an -- meant.
What's -- so again there's that connection and not only that all of the girls that we're messing that were recovered.
They worked debt that Burger King that I was just talking about so again that's another avenue and the police are gonna look at what is the connection between all of these folks.
Iraq I just wonder from the investigative point of view.
When they look at it -- like this which is a working class -- area.
-- -- that area from the law enforcement point of view different from an upper class middle class area is that why they're not following -- all these -- or is it just -- -- -- stand.
Yeah I wouldn't say that that would be a stretch to say that Brian I think it on their -- that area lack SA -- -- -- -- the working class area.
And I think you know the police department with the resource is that they have the limited resources that could play a role in this but I think they do a pretty good job of trying to follow up Brian I'm most of these case that the tough.
It's a tough case real quickly ride.
The reports are that this home was going into for closure.
What would have happened inside the mind of this guy.
If now this home is not available for him for -- -- remaining to be held captive anymore to have you thought about how that might have factored into any in this.
You know I think Gretchen and I think that's a good question but I think -- that would have been the case of these people would have been evicted from this home they probably -- -- move these female somewhere else that's all I believe.
And just right Rod Wheeler thanks so much for your insights -- it.
Sir thank you --
