Families of missing in Ohio wait for their miracle

CLEVELAND (AP) - Families of those missing in Cleveland are still waiting for their own miracles a year after three women were freed from a decade of captivity.

A pastor who works with those families says the stunning discovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight inside a ramshackle home May 6, 2013, brought a sense of unity and urgency to the city.

The list of missing people in Cleveland, a city of just under 400,000, makes up about one out of every 10 cases in the state.

Police have changed how they handle missing-persons cases, but some activists think authorities need to be more proactive when people go missing. Paster Angel Arroyo has met with lawmakers to discuss an idea that would go beyond issuing Amber Alerts for children.
