CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Could Cleveland Police have done more searching for two missing teens and a 20-year old? 

Some on Cleveland's City Council are sounding off.

City Councilman Kevin Conwell believes Cleveland Police should have tried harder to find Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight when they first went missing.

He says Cleveland Police could have done a better job following up.

"The system we have right now it's not working. Community policing is the best way go," said Conwell.

While, Conwell stops shy of blaming police his colleague Mike Polenske says they did a good job following up on leads.

"We have to look at the bigger picture so the issue of an audit and we get a picture of many people are still missing," said Mike Polenske. 

Both men were addressed the issue on council floor Monday night.
