"I want to thank everybody for coming out to this special event," says Felix DeJesus.
National Night Out against crime has a special meaning in Cleveland as the father of kidnapping survivor Gina DeJesus thanked thousands for turning out to the event he's attended year after year, hoping his daughter would be found.
"My being here and bringing this awareness for the people to see and give them strength also. Now the healing begins for my daughter and that's going to take a while, that's going to take years," added Felix. "I started crying when I heard all this and I had to go into my room and share a silent moment."
Rachel Williamson was one of hundreds of parents who brought her kids to sign up for a free identity packet. Fingerprints, pictures and DNA taken to help police in case her little ones go missing.
"Especially what happened to the girls. Thank God they're home safe and everything . Hopefully heaven forbid anything happen to my children," says Rachel.
The National Night Out campaign involves citizens, law enforcement agencies, civic groups, businesses, neighborhood organizations and local officials from more than 15,000 communities and all 50 states, U.S. territories, Canadian cities and military bases worldwide.
