'I started to lose hope I'd see her again' - Amanda Berry's cousin


The families of three women who have been found alive in Cleveland, Ohio, about a decade since they went missing have been speaking of their delight at the news they never thought they would hear.

Amanda Berry disappeared aged 16 in 2003, Gina DeJesus went missing aged 14 a year later, and Michelle Knight disappeared in 2002 aged around 19.

Their discovery followed a dramatic bid for freedom by Amanda Berry on Monday, helped by a neighbour.

Ms Berry's cousin, Tina Miller, told BBC's Newsnight programme how she learnt of the news that Amanda had been found, and said she had "started to lose hope I'd see her again".
