Amazing: 3 missing Ohio women escape kidnappers after nearly a decade

After nearly 10 years after their disappearance, three Ohio women were miraculously found alive Monday just south of downtown Cleveland.

TheBlaze.com reports that one of the women told a 911 dispatcher the person who had taken her was gone, and she pleaded for police officers to come and get her, saying, "I'm free now."

On a recorded 911 call Monday, Berry declared, “I’m Amanda Berry. I’ve been on the news for the last 10 years.”

She said she had been taken by someone and begged for police officers to arrive at the home on Cleveland’s west side before he returned.

“I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for 10 years,” she told the dispatcher. “And I’m here. I’m free now.”

Below is the 911 call of Amanda Berry following her rescue:

Police said a 52-year-old man was among those arrested. They released no names and gave no details about the others arrested or what charges they might face. However, Cleveland.com reports that police arrested the owner of the house, Ariel Castro, who has lived in the house since 1992. “Records show he was arrested for domestic  violence in 1993, but a grand jury declined to indict him,” the report adds.

"An amazing development," Glenn said upon reading the news report. "First of all, it's incredible that the women survived. It's really amazing the defense mechanisms we have. It's truly amazing on what we can endure and what we will endure for ten years."

The remarkable story reminded Glenn of a gift he received after the Restoring Love event in Washington D.C. from the family of Hugh Stafford, a veteran who had been held in a Vietnamese prison camp.

"I want to show it to you on television tonight," Glenn told his radio audience. "Here's a guy who was in prison for about ten years in Vietnam, and one of the things that he wrote was, am I going to be mad at my loved ones, because they went on with their life, and they had to, because they thought I was dead, but will I be mad?"

Transitioning back to the newly freed women, Glenn noted that there must be so much going through their minds. At least one of the families knew the man who took the girls. They grew up in the same neighborhood and he was a bus driver up until last fall for the local school.

"It is amazing to me the evil that exists and the evil that is in our own communities," Glenn said.

It's incredible to think that these women were hidden just a few miles away from their homes for ten years without being discovered.

"How do you hide this for ten years?" Pat asked.

A local reporter interviewed the neighbor who helped the girl after he heard her screaming. He was beside himself at the possibility of the three women being trapped there for ten years without knowing. Even though he didn't know what was happening inside his neighbors home, he did have a gut feeling something was wrong there.

"That's what's so amazing," Glenn said.

The neighbor knew that something was wrong in that house.

"That is the gift of fear," he added. "It is the gift of fear.  It is a gift given the each of us. Remember when I have said in the past, there's going to come a time when you are going to hear stop, turn around, go the other way.  Do it."

"It's not just stop, town around, go the other way.  If you feel there's something wrong, you should follow up on that.  You should follow.  There's something wrong here. I'm telling you, as the darkness grows darker, the light will grow lighter. Darkness is merely a shadow — one can't grow without the other.  And so the light will become lighter. Your senses — if you work on it — your senses will become stronger," Glenn said.

Glenn shared that he gets these feelings a lot at book signings. He meets so many people that it's hard to connect with all of them, but from time to time, someone will approach him and he'll get a gut feeling or a prompting to say something.

"I can usually sense in people things," Glenn said, "and Saturday [at a book signing], this guy comes in line, and he looks fine and I have no idea what's going on in his life, but he looks fine, he smiles at me and says, 'Hi, Mr. Beck, how are you?'  I said 'good', signed his book, and I immediately hear, 'tell him everything is going to be okay'."

But the man had already walked away and the line kept moving. Still holding on to that sense that he needed to talk to the man, Glenn eventually excused himself and was able to find and approach him.

"By the time I did that, he was out of the line and almost all the way over to the escalators, it's 50 feet from here.  And so I had to go around the line, around the curtains and go out to where he was. And now I feel really stupid, because as I'm approaching him, he's with two friends and they are laughing.  I'm like he seems fine.  He's fine.  I tap him on the shoulder and I said 'excuse me'.  He said, 'Hey…Oh hey'.  I said, 'I don't know what this means, but I just want you to know everything is going to be fine'," Glenn told listeners.

The man then broke down into tears.

"The reason I tell you this story is because this guy said similar things. He says 'I knew it, I just knew it. I would have pulled this heroic stuff last year.' What was it last year?" Glenn asked. 

"Listen. Listen to the spirit. Listen to that inner voice," Glenn continued. "There's something to it. Now, if that inner voice is saying go kill some people and go get me a ham sandwich, that's probably — that's something else. Something you probably want to not pay attention to that one, but listen to it, because we're all going to need it. And it really truly is a muscle. The more you exercise that muscle, the better it is."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
