Georgina DeJesus: Photo and AP to be shown during NBA finals!

It sounds like this must have happened this week. I do not know if people watching the game at home were also able to see this information. Either way, hopefully this helped provide leads to help find Gina and Mandy!

CLEVELAND -- All eyes are on
Cleveland for the NBA Finals.
And the families of two missing girls hope
more eyes will help in the search for their loved ones. 14-year-old Gina Dejesus
disappeared while walking home from school three years ago. Amanda Berry
vanished after leaving her job in 2003.
Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena, the photos of both girls, along with
age progression pictures of how they may look currently, will be played on the
Cavaliers scoreboard.
"I thanked them from the bottom of my heart," said Nancy Ruiz, mother of
Gina Dejesus. "They've given me this chance, this hope."
The photos will be shown before the game and at halftime. And fliers with
the girls' information will be taped to the arena's doors.
A friend of both families wrote a letter to the Cavaliers asking for
permission to post Amanda's and Gina's photos. The Cavaliers and NBA officals
gave their approval.
"You never know," Ruiz said. "If somebody just sees these girls or saw my
baby, to call and help me bring my baby home. Both of them."
