JOIE CHEN, CNN ANCHOR: We are now seeing a report from Kerrville, live pictures here. They reunited the young girl with her parents. That is the father on the left of your screen, the father of Leah Henry, talking with reporters there. Let's listen to what they have to say out there.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The other person I would like to introduce right here is a sergeant. David Blyder (ph), come on up here, David. David is a little bit dirty from trying to get the girl and get out of there, but I thank him very much for the job he did for this department and for all of us, and saved that little girl.

Mr. Henry, you want to say something?

TIM HENRY, KIDNAP VICTIM FATHER: Yes, I want to thank everyone who has been responsible for bringing my daughter back to me today. I received the call about -- I am not too good on these times -- early this morning, about 9:30 or 10:00, from Special Agent Masquera, saying my daughter is fine, she is in Kerrville. And that is the greatest phone call I've ever had in my life.

I want to thank the media for generating the kind of publicity they did to get this going. The FBI, all the law enforcement in Houston, in San Antonio and Kerrville county, and I especially want to -- David, you are my friend for life. You did great. You got my little girl out of there, and I am just so thrilled to see her again, to see her smile, to see her laugh.

She is in there eating some pineapple pizza now, which no one else will eat. So I am just thrilled, and I thank you all.

CHEN: The father of Leah Henry talking with reporters out there in Kerrville, Texas, a very emotional guy, of course, as we can well understand, happy to be reunited and to see that his little girl is safe.
