Jim Carroll / JILL'S FATHER - "it was
a fantastic conversation obviously.
We're feeling ecstatic. It's been a
long haul and we're done with it now."

CARROLL WAS RELEASED ONTO A BAGHDAD
STREET THURSDAY -- NEAR THE OFFICES OF
A MAIN SUNNI POLITICAL PARTY.

Jill Carroll / FREED HOSTAGE - "They
just came to me and said okay, we're
letting you go now."

GUNMEN WITH A GROUP CALLED "REVENGE
BRIGADES" KIDNAPPED THE 28-YEAR OLD
FREELANCE JOURNALIST IN JANUARY... AND
KILLED HER TRANSLATOR. SHE WAS WORKING
FOR THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR AT
THE TIME. CARROLL DOESN'T KNOW WHERE
SHE WAS HELD -- BUT, SHE SAYS HER
CAPTORS TREATED HER WELL.

Jill Carroll / FREED HOSTAGE - "they
gave me clothing, plenty of food, I was
allowed to take showers, go to the
bathroom when I wanted... They never
hit me, never threatened to hit me.

THOSE WORDS WERE A HUGE RELIEF TO HER
FAMILY. UNTIL THURSDAY -- THE WORLD HAD
ONLY SEEN GLIMPSES OF CARROLL ON

VIDEOTAPES MADE BY HER CAPTORS. TWICE,
THEY THREATENED TO KILL HER.

President Bush - "I'm really grateful
she was released and thank those who
worked hard for her release, and we're
glad she's alive."

THE U-S MILITARY SAYS, IT DIDN'T PLAY A
ROLE IN RESCUING CARROLL. AND THE U-S
AMBASSADOR TO IRAQ SAYS, THE AMERICAN
EMBASSY DID "NOT" PAY THE RANSOM
REQUESTED BY HER KIDNAPPERS.

Claudia Coffey / CBS NEWS - "jill

warning signs: if you have troubling
listening to a conversation when there
is background noise or can't always
understand what someone is saying even

The audiologist does recommend

to keep track of your children- now in
Japan.. technology is helping.

ENG#=2 VO-NAT



VO-NAT




*CG locator Tokyo, Japan Parents are now using a global
positioning system of GPS to track
their children's movements on their
mobile phones.

Eight year old Ana carriers her
phone all the time.

Her mother can follow her progress
on a laptop computer.

The price for this peace of mind:

eight dollars a month and the cost of
the mobile phone.

A 24 hour security desk also keeps
tabs. If Anna presses an alarm on
her phone, her parents will be
immediately notified- and can have
security officers dispatched.

The system is becoming popular
after several kidnappings and attacks
on children.
