Viewer Believes She Saw Missing Teen On TV

CLEVELAND -- Three years after Amanda Berry mysteriously disappeared from the streets of Cleveland, police continue searching for her.

Last week, a NewsChannel5 viewer thought she saw the teenager on television. 5 On Your Side chief investigator Duane Pohlman and Cuyahoga County sheriff's detectives wasted no time picking up the trail.

A young woman giving a testimonial on camera during the March 4 episode of the Ohio Lottery's show "Cash Explosion" triggered the tip.

"You gotta come, try it out," said a woman with blue hair.

The viewer thought the face looked very much like Berry. The teenager disappeared three years ago, the day before her 17th birthday. She was walking home from work on Lorain Avenue.

Her case was in the news nearly every day for months. Amanda's picture was everywhere.
