Audio: Missing Ohio woman Amanda Berry's frantic 911 call: 'Help me. I've been kidnapped'


Police have released the 911 call made by Amanda Berry, after she escaped from the house she was held in captive for a decade.

Berry was rescued by neighbour Charles Ramsey before she called the emergency services and alerted them to the two other woman imprisoned at the property in Cleveland, Ohio.

She can be heard on the recording saying: "Hello, police. Help me, I'm Amanda Berry. I need police... I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years and I'm here, I'm free now."

Berry disappeared on her way home from her job at Burger King, the day before her 17th birthday.

The two other women have been identified as Gina DeJesus, 23, who vanished in 2004 at age 14, and Michelle Knight, who was reported to have been 20 when she disappeared more than a decade ago.
