McDonald’s to Cleveland man who helped missing woman: ‘We’ll be in touch’

Updated: May 8, 2013 12:50AM



NEW YORK — McDonald’s says it will reach out to a man widely quoted in accounts of the three women who were found in Cleveland after they went missing about a decade ago.

Charles Ramsey, who lives in the neighborhood where the women were found, noted in an interview with a local TV station that he was eating McDonald’s when the scene unfolded Monday. He also made note of his meal in a 911 call. Both the interview and the 911 call went viral online.

On Tuesday, the world’s biggest hamburger company said on Twitter: “We salute the courage of Ohio kidnap victims & respect their privacy. Way to go Charles Ramsey — we’ll be in touch.”

Representatives for McDonald’s, based in Oak Brook, Ill., did not immediately return calls for comment.
