she climb out. she went to my house and called 911. >> finally free. berry disappeared back in 2003 the day before her 17th birthday. about a year later 14-year-old gina the girl on the left vanished on her way home from school. meantime michelle nice who was 21 at the time was last seen leaving her cousin's house back in 2002. >> crowds cheered as they heard the news. family members were filled with emotion after learning their loved ones were safe. >> telling me she is okay and she is got a daughter.
>> this is a brand new photo of amanda berry at the hospital with her sister being reunited. the young girl next to her, her daughter. doctors say all of the women are getting medical treatment but appear to be in good health. >> it's just truly, truly amazing and it's a blessing to the community and members of the police department and their families that they are alive. >> they raised three brothers in connection to the case. they plan to release more information about them at a press conference this morning at 9:00 a.m. we will be following that. heather, back to you. >> we are joined on the phone by silvia cohen she is the cousin of gina de jesus. one of the missing women who was found alive. are you there? >> i am oo. >> thank you so much for joining
us. first your initial response when you realized she was found alive? >> i think like everybody else in the family disbelief, but then you think to yourself, gina's mom has always stayed steadfast and in the belief that her daughter was alive somewhere. you couple that thought with this is unbelievable and you think she was always right, aunt nancy was always right. here it is close to mother's day and we have her daughter home. >> her family has been reunited with her at this point. i know she is was in the hospital first and interviewed with police. >> beyond that i shouldn't say much about that at this point. >> anything about her condition and her state of mind?
>> not at this time with the immediate family we are being very respectful those of us who have done the interviews we are being respectful of their time together and the time she is going to need to probably come back out for everybody else to see her and these women were found a short distance away from where they disappeared. do you have any feelings about that? they were right there in the neighborhood. how do you feel about that this they were so close by? >> it is certainly to all of us very involved looking for gina and the folks looking for amanda as well. it is mind boggling to believe
they were almost on the same street. we in theory probably knocked on that house a million times. >> there are reports that the family jeanna knew the perpetrators knew the family of all of these brothers allegedly. >> our family has known the family for a very long time. >> that is really mazing. silvia thank you so much for joining us. i know your prayers have been answered this morning. so congratulations to you on that. thank you. thank you very much. we appreciate it and again i think it's a phenomenal mother's day. >> you are right to point that out. >> three brothers are in custody right now for the next step in the investigation.

consecutive life sentences. >> what about state verses federal charges. >> government can bring charges and state can bring charges even the same activities providing there are different statutes applied. one of the most common is the elizabeth smart case. the state government and federal government moved forward. they gained jurisdiction because they had been crossing the state line. if one of the victims was trafficked across state lines the federal government with all of the resources could go forward in addition to the state government. they have to work that out. sometimes the turf battles can get nasty. >> and the ages of the victims at the times that they were kidnapped that also will be taken into account? >> the aggravating nature of the circumstances it can add to separate charges or serious. a lot of people say it won't go
to trial there's so many victims there will be inevitably so much evidence. likely these cases go to trial for that reason. prosecutors look at it these charges are so serious such a powerful case we are not going to give any generous plea offer. might as well roll the dice and challenge it the defense says. >> what we heard the cousin there the de jesus family knew these alleged perpetrators. what does that say to you? >> that's so often the case. >> the community itself knew these guys. >> so often the case we find out it's akwan senses sometimes family members sometimes rel 2i6s or perpetrators. they should look at atenses first. they have an advantage knowing the victims knowing what the patterns are knowing what do to cover their tracks.

want him to be buried in russia. they are refusing to take his remains. the funeral home director handling the arrangement says he thinks it's a great idea. >> russia is a great idea. you ask anybody around they would think russia is the best idea. i think the uncle would like do that the parents would like to do that. i am sure the usa would see them do that. >> one of three men handling his brother have the bombing has been released on bail. he was released when they questioned him for disposal of items in the days after the april 15th bombing. police posted 100,000 dollars bond. he will be under house arrest until his trial. >> after weeks of watching and waiting north korea has moved the missiles away from the launch site. pentagon officials say it happened within the last
two-days. it is not being moved to a different launch location. it can't speak to why there may be a cause in provocation from north korea. >> the senate passed a bill it would allow states to collect taxes oint net sales on states like ebay and amazon. they can only collect from stores that have a physical presence in that state. the bill now heads to the house. >> republican senator stealing the show from president obama during a bipartisan game of golf. he had a hole in one on the 11th home. bob corker beat the president and mark nudal. it is the second hole in one. president obama had never witnessed one before and thought it was pretty cool. >> the time now is 12 minutes after the hour. coming up we will condititinue

>> that man charles ramsey thank goodness for him. he started helping her. >> i looked and i see this girl. she is going nuts on the door. i am like what's your problem? you stuck? just open the door. she says i can't he got it locked. i look how he has it. it's enough to reach his handout and grab the mail and close the door. naturally going to pry it open. that didn't work. we had to kick open the bottom. luckily that door was aluminum. she climbed out with her daughter. she went to my house and called 911. >> help me i am amanda berry. >> you need police fire or ambulance? >> i need police. >> what's going on there. >> i have been kidnapped i have been missing for ten years and i am here, i am free now. >> chilling. berry disappeared back in 2003 the day before her 17th birthday. about a year later 14-year-old gina dejesus you see her on the left vanished from her way home from her middle school.
meantime michelle knight who was 21 at the time was last seen leaving her cousin's house back in 2002.

families that they are alive. >> police arrested those three brothers in connection with this case. they plan to release more information at a press conference. we will be following that on the fox news channel. >> can you image? thank you so much. we spoke with silvia a cousin of gina dejesus and a possible connection to the suspect. >> i think like everybody else in the family disbelief, but then you think to yourself gina's mom has always stayed steadfast and in the belief that her daughter was alive somewhere. so couple that thought with this is unbelievable and you think, she was always right. aunt nancy was always right. here it is close to mother's day
and we have our family member home. it's mind boggling to believe that they were literally almost on the same street. i mean i can remember us canvassing that entire area and we probably in theory went to that house a thousand times and they were there the whole time. >> reports came out this morning that they have -- the family of gina knew the family involved these brothers allegedly. do you know if that in fact is true? >> our family has known the family for a very long time. >> well, so how will the ordeal effect these women? will they be able to fully recover? joining us now on the phone is psychologist jeff gardear. >> it's a pleasure, thank you. >> how difficult will it be for those three women who have been away for so long.
we don't know what was going on they were held against their will. they are obviously we don't know for sure they were probably kept as sex slaves, and who knows. they might have been tortured. maybe some stock hole am syndrome though it appears these women, at least one of them were absolutely ecstatic and desperate to get out of there. i am sure all three wanted to be out of there. as soon as they can be de briefed get psychological counseling which will take years and years and years they should make some recovery but they will never be the same. this is something they will deal with for the rest of their lives particularly from post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety. >> in the meantime we are talking about the three women but there's also a child in the mix a child who some are identifying as amanda berry's daughter. what will the road be like for
this child whose identity isn't fully confirmed at this point. >> we don't know what kind of feelings she may have for the captors themselves if one of them is the father of that child. so it will be a very difficulty motionnal situation for her, because she may have split loyalties, but it does seem that with the apprehension of these individuals certainly as she gets older she will begin to understand the horror from which she may have been born and what her mother had to go through. so eventually her mind will be changed as to whatever emotional or loving feeling she may have for one of those captors if one of them is a father to her. >> you mentioned the stock hole am syndrome. that is interesting that they don't seem to be exhibiting that loyalty to their captors.
in many cases these people turns out they had chances to escape but they didn't. seems like in this case these three women were desperate oh escape. as you say a long road ahead for them but certainly on the right track in terms of understanding this was a situation they wanted to escape. >> time for your 5@5:30. >> the driver couldn't have done more to save the five women who died. >> >> a spark came out and stop the car. stop the car. >> mela was one of nine women out celebrating a friend's wedding when their limo burst into flames. once the driver pulled over she says he just got out. she was left to crawl through the partition to escape.
>> he got out from the car he just opened the door that's all he did. i was saying help me help me. >> he went on to say other drivers tried to help but it was too late. officials say it will take weeks to determine the cause of the fire. >> the salt lake city district attorney is still considering whether to file criminal charges against a teenager accused of fatally punching a soccer referee. he is accused of hitting a ref in the head after he call add penalty during a recreational league game. >> it raises issues for us understandably. i have a family that is in mourning of their loss and i have a family who has a juvenile. we have to balance it whether we want to move from juvenile to an adult system. >> the teen being held on
suspicion of aggravated assault. >> two years after a florida jury found casey anthony not guilty of murdering her two-year-old daughter the judge is breaking his center lines. he was so shocked with the verdict. they have to read it twice. >> a little bit of disbelief. shock. the judge will be the judge she knows what happened. >> he says that he and casey are concerned and disgusted and they aren't sure why the judge would do this. >> a bar trick goes horribly wrong in russia. it is all caught on camera.
>> what happened there was there was a fire and that man is suing the bartender for setting him on fire. he is being treated for severe burns. the bartender claims it's the victim's fault because he asked for a different liquor than the one he usually uses for that trick. >> hollywood's biggest stars hit the red carpet last night at the metropolitan museum of arts gala. they didn't shy away at the chance to play dressup while keeping up with this year's theme which by the way was punk. >> (inaudible) >> even tiger woods and lindsay vaughn they didn't mrooung either. it was their first public appearance as a couple.
