Rally Planned Where Cleveland Women Found Last May

CLEVELAND (AP) — Advocates for missing people in Ohio are planning to host a rally on the street in Cleveland where three women escaped a home after being held captive for close to 10 years.

Tuesday is the anniversary of the escape from the house by Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus.

Berry and DeJesus will be in Washington Tuesday night where they will be honored by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Organizers of the afternoon rally in Cleveland say they want to bring attention to the people who remain missing in the city.

All three women say are thriving and thankful to be free from the house where Ariel Castro kept them locked inside.

The 53-year-old Castro pleaded guilty in August and soon after committed suicide in prison.
