How we got the story
After three women were released from more than a decade of captivity in Cleveland, reporter Craig Schneider combed databases of missing persons and news reports for cases of Georgia teens abducted by strangers. An Atlanta Journal-Constitution story from 1997 told of Tamra Davis, taken from Snellville at the age of 14 and held for four days by three men who drove her to Florida and then to Kentucky. Schneider traced Davis to Chattanooga and interviewed her, her mother, her grandmother and her sister. He also spoke to police and prosecutors who worked the case and reviewed the court file.
