School closings due to heat wave

Elizabeth Smart and Amanda Berry have monumental meeting at FOX 8

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Two young girls ripped from their families by sexual predators, tortured, held against their will, and worse.

Their abductions were big news; their heroic escapes were even bigger.

Their stories of survival are very similar and now their mission.. even more. Elizabeth Smart is a special correspondent for Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen and works to help other victims recover. Amanda Berry joined FOX 8 News last month to help find missing persons.

In a FOX 8 News exclusive, Stefani Schaefer sat down with Elizabeth  and Amanda for the first time.
