By Ryan Jones

LINN COUNTY, Iowa - The discovery of three missing women in Cleveland, Ohio Monday is bringing fresh attention to Iowa's missing person's cases. Relatives are imagining happy outcomes in missing cases here.

Erin Pospisil of Cedar Rapids who was 15 when she disappeared in June 2001. Twelve years later, her grandparents still hope Erin will be found alive. On Tuesday, they handed out more than a hundred of these missing person cards, hoping someone will remember something that will bring Erin home.

"Erin could be right here in Cedar Rapids and anything you noticed that seems out of place in the neighborhood that could be someone needing your help and that could be Erin this time," said Joan Minney, Posposil's grandmother.

Jennifer Puetsch of Dubuque is also feeling a renewed sense of hope. Her sister, Crystal Arensdorf has been missing for almost 12 years. She was last seen July 3rd, 2001 at Knicker's Saloon in Dubuque. Puetsch is feeling many different emotions, especially since the Ohio girls were found so close to home.

"Oh when I think about that I just want to go start pounding on doors and breaking doors in. You can't do that, because not everybody is like that. But it does give you hope that what if she is just across the street," said Puetsch.

Anyone with information about these missing person cases, or others, should call (800) 346-5507.
