Investigators enter a house on the west side of Cleveland on Monday where police say three women were found. The women who went missing separately about a decade ago, when they were in their teens or early 20s, were found alive in the house, and a man was arrested.
CLEVELAND - Cleveland's police chief says he thinks three women who went missing separately a decade ago were tied up in the house where they were found and had been there since they disappeared.
Police say three brothers have been arrested and one is from the home. They say the women were found Monday and one said she'd been kidnapped. Police have released no names and given no details about the men or the charges they might face.
The county prosecutor joined dozens of police officers and sheriff's deputies at the scene as they began searching the house late Monday.
Authorities say the women have been taken to a hospital to reunite with relatives and seem to be in good health.
Michelle Knight had been missing since 2002, Amanda Berry since 2003 and Gina DeJesus since 2004.
