NEW YORK (AP) — The discovery of three missing women who police say were held captive in an Ohio home for a decade has put an unexpected spotlight on McDonald's.

Charles Ramsey, a neighbor who said he heard screaming from the house, 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 addressed the matter on Twitter.


McDonald's Corp.
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.
