CNN’s Brooke Baldwin talks to Jackie Sing, who was born and raised in Moore, Oklahoma. His house was severely damaged but is still standing. Sing said he’d gladly trade places with neighbors who lost homes, especially a young couple with a newborn baby.
Three women who were missing in separate cases have been found together in Cleveland, police said. A 52-year-old man was arrested.
One of the women called 911 after breaking out of the house where she had been living.
"Help me; I am Amanda Berry," she said, her voice distraught in an audio recording of the call. "I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years. And I'm here and I'm free now."
CNN's coverage of the story includes Brooke Baldwin (@BrookeBCNN) anchoring CNN Newsroom 2-4pmE from Cleveland today.

CNN’s John Berman and Brooke Baldwin challenge Southern Baptist Convention’s Richard Land on his view against allowing gays to participate in Boy Scouts.
Land says, “The Scouts have said for themselves for over a hundred years that traditional morality is at the core value of scouting – teaching them to be morally straight. And now they are going to make it a local option under pressure from corporations and from some Scout groups. A core value is not a local option. When a core value becomes a local option it’s just a preference, and preferences are normally not protected by the First Amendment. Core values and convictions are…. Homosexuals by definition are attracted to people of the same sex. Now, I’m not accusing homosexuals of being pedophiles. But I’m accusing homosexuals of being what they say they are – attracted to males. How many people that are listening to me would allow their teenage girls to go on camp outs and engage in camping activities with heterosexual males? They wouldn’t.”
Berman says, “When I was a cub scout… we had den mothers. Obviously opposite sex of the cub scout troops.” FULL POST
Richard III Society’s Philippa Langley explains to CNN’s John Berman and Brooke Baldwin how she and other researchers were able to find remains of Richard III.
Langley says, “It was a really strange story. We could tell by the street signs that we were in the right area for the Greyfriars precinct, but we didn't know if we were in the right area for the Greyfriars Church. So, I had this very strange experience where I felt I was standing on top of Richard's grave and there was an "R" marked into the tarmac. It was just a hand painted "R" for "Reserved," but when I had the feeling, I felt that I was standing on his grave right by this letter "R." So, when we then outlined the trenches, that letter "R" was in the first trench and in the very first few feet of the first trench, and we actually found him on day one.”
