Cleveland police have released the frantic 911 call made by Amanda Berry after she escaped a house Monday evening ending her 10-year disappearance.

"Help me, I'm Amanda Berry," she tells the dispatcher. "I've been kidnapped. I've been missing for 10 years and I'm out here. I'm free now."

She urges the dispatcher to send police right away. "I need them now before he gets back."

Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight were found in a home on Seymour Avenue. They ran across the street to a neighbor to call for help.
