CHICAGO (CBS) — The Cleveland kidnapping case is giving renewed hope to the family of Tionda and Diamond Bradley – the sisters missing from their South Side home since 2001 and other families.
It is the essence of bittersweet.
Sheliah Bradley Smith, the great aunt of the two missing sisters, has become an advocate for families of the missing since the girls disappeared almost 12 years ago.
She says she is thrilled the three Cleveland women were found after vanishing about a decade ago.
“If it had not been for that one man within his own community coming forward and stepping up to help, the story may not have turned out the way it had.
“And I am so happy that they were found. I am so happy,” she says, choked with emotion.
