Former America's Most Wanted Host John Walsh thrilled that missing women are found alive; advises them against TV interviews until they can 'mentally handle it'

Former America's Most Wanted Host John Walsh, whose son was abducted and killed in 1981, is a longtime advocate for missing children. He weighs in on the case. Walsh says he is thrilled to see that these three women and a child are alive.

His advice to the kidnapping victims is to avoid TV interviews and get psychological counseling for their trauma first. “Do not do the news shows,” he says. “Don’t do it till you’re ready, don’t do it till you think you can mentally handle it. That's the best way to recover from ten years of confinement, and fear of being—either being killed or kept there for the rest of your life.”
