Amazing 911 call. Are you kidding me?

sounds like the 911 operator was pretty disinterested.

Dispatcher: OK, and what's your address?

Caller: 2207 Seymour Avenue.

Dispatcher: 2207 Seymour. Looks like you're calling me from 2210.

Caller: Huh?


"huh?" would be my thought as well. like...i just got rescued from being kidnapped for a decade and i really want to tackle this issue of me being 100 feet away from where you think i am.

I'm wondering how they kept this a secret through the birth of the six year old (home birth right?) and what they thought they were going to do about her schooling? The six year old seems to be the biggest victim here.

How cool would it be to get Surfer Kai from Fresno and Charles at the same BBW to enjoy some ribs and beer? Reality at its best.

To me, the craziest bit of this story is that the girls were apparently allowed to watch TV and the news and such and so knew that their disappearances were still a big deal ten years on.

I'm guessing a there are legit reasons for asking this. For example, they don't want to send assets to a prank call, so they will verify that the person is calling about a different address than what shows up on the ID. Probably doesn't do any good for the kidnap victim to know that, of course.

Some of these urban kidnapping stories are just bizarre to me. I mean, I understand Stockholm Syndrome and such, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had chances to cry for help in the past. Take Elizabeth Smart, for example.

So wait...is it for sure that the 6 year old is Berry's? I've heard that it may be hers, but I didnt hear anything else about it. The whole situation is just crazy.

Read this morning that Anderson Cooper asked Mr. Ramsey about the reward to which Charles pulled a piece of paper out of his pocket and said, "I get a paycheck, give the reward to those girls."and Good on him.

And if he was just working the hero angle, even better on him.
