An FBI missing person poster shows Amanda Berry. An Ohio school bus driver and his two brothers have been arrested after three women who vanished separately as teenagers about a decade ago were found alive at a Cleveland house.
"She's not alive, honey," Sylvia Browne told Louwana Miller on The Montel Williams Show in 2004. "Your daughter's not the kind who wouldn't call."

Miller then told the Cleveland Plain Dealer in November 2004 that Browne's pronouncement made her give up hope.
"Please don't misunderstand me. I still don't want to believe it. I want to have hope but, after a year and a half, what else is there?" Miller said. "It seems like the God-honest truth. My daughter would always call home."
Berry disappeared April 21, 2003, at age 16, while walking home from her job at Burger King.

She was found Monday in a Cleveland home, along with her six-year-old daughter and two other missing women.
Miller, who had pancreatitis, died in 2006.
"She literally died of a broken heart," said Dona Brady, a friend of the family.
