CLEVELAND -- The Missouri case is bringing hope to many families with missing children, including one on the West side of Cleveland.
Felix and Nancy have been glued to their t-v for a week --- hoping, and praying for the missing boys and their families in Missouri.
Watching them reunite is bringing a roller coaster of emotions.
"It's a miracle that they found these two young boys, I cried almost all night," said Gina's Father, Felix.
"That gives us all, other parents, hope to stand up stronger and never give up that hope because you never know, like now, you never know," said Gina's Mother, Nancy.
In April of 2004, their youngest daughter, 14-year old Gina DeJesus disappeared while walking home from her school, Wilbur Wright in Cleveland.
An intense search turned up nothing.
A year later the FBI released a sketch of a possible suspect, while the community showed their support by building a mound of stuffed animals outside Gina's window.
Her parents have never given up hope of finding their little girl alive, just like the parents in Missouri.
"Amazing, it's hard right now for me to find the exact words I want to say, my feelings, I know someday I know I'll go through it," said Nancy.
Gina's bedroom is now filled with angels, and candles that have been burning since she disappeared.404 -- Page Not Found | wkyc.com
