TULSA - A miraculous story of survival out of Cleveland, Ohio has given some Green Country families hope.
On Monday, three women kidnapped separately a decade ago were found alive. Their stories spawn hope for local families awaiting the return of their own missing loved ones.
Detectives with the Tulsa Police Department say hundreds of people are reported missing each year.
Currently there are 130 active missing adult cases in Tulsa -- the oldest one dating back to 1974.
Police say they've had a lot of success reaching out ot the public through social media sites like Facebook.
Pictures of the missing are posted in hopes someone will come forward with a tip.
Namus.gov is another website used to reach out nationally. There, visitors will find a listing for April McCaslin, who went missing in April 2012.
The 48-year-old woman suffers from bipolar disorder. Her father says he's gone neighborhood to neighborhood looking for his daughter.
"You think the worst about a lot of things," said Tom McCaslin. "I would like to hear from her or find something, but it causes a lot of problems mentally."
Tulsa police say they have a stack full of books with unsolved cases, but the location of the Cleveland women reaffirms their stance that they will never give up on finding those who are missing.
Anyone with information on McCaslin's whereabouts or any other missing person should call Tulsa police at (918) 596-COPS.
