Missing Women Found: Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus' Families Shared Hope On 'The Oprah Show' In 2009 (VIDEO)

In October 2009, "The Oprah Winfrey Show" featured the stories of three young Cleveland, Ohio, girls who had disappeared within blocks of one another over the course of four years. Amanda Berry went missing at age 16 on April 21, 2003; Gina DeJesus went missing at age 14 on April 2, 2004; and Ashley Summers went missing at age 14 on July 6, 2007.

Then, on May 6, 2013, Amanda and Gina escaped from their alleged captors, and the missing women were found just blocks from where they vanished. (Ashley is still missing.) In this clip from "The Oprah Show," FBI special agent Phil Torsney details the circumstances surrounding the girls' disappearances while their family members open up about their struggles and hopes.

"What's been hardest for me is that Amanda's just been gone for too long and I want her home," said her sister, Beth Serrano.

"The not knowing is what's tearing us apart," said Gina's mother, Nancy Ruiz. "But I fight. I'm never going to give up."
