3 Women Missing For A Decade Found Alive In Ohio Home

OHIO WOMAN MISSING FOR DECADE HAS DAUGHTER:

CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland police official says a 6-year-old girl found in the house where three missing women were kept for years is the daughter of one of them.
    
A frantic 911 call led police to a house near downtown Cleveland, where the three women were found Monday.
    
Police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were held inside the house since they were in their teens or early 20s.
    
Cleveland police Deputy Chief Ed Tomba says the girl is believed to be Amanda Berry's daughter.
    
Knight disappeared in 2002, Berry in 2003 and DeJesus about a year after that.
    
Officials say three brothers, ages 50 to 54, are in custody.

NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT HOUSE WHERE 3 WOMEN WERE:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland officials say they have no records of anyone calling about criminal activity at the house where three kidnapped women were kept for years before being found.
    
A frantic 911 call led police to a house near downtown Cleveland, where the three women were found Monday.
    
Officials say three brothers, ages 50 to 54, are in custody.
    
Police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were tied up at the house and held there since they were in their teens or early 20s. Knight disappeared in 2002, Berry in 2003 and DeJesus about a year after that.
    
Police said Tuesday they went to the home in 2004 for an unrelated investigation but no one answered the door.

FRANTIC 911 CALL LEADS TO 3 MISSING WOMEN IN OHIO:

CLEVELAND (AP) - The three women who disappeared a decade ago in Cleveland and were found alive are out of the hospital.
    
Metro Health Medical Center says all three were released Tuesday morning.
    
A frantic 911 call led police to a house near downtown Cleveland, where the three women were found Monday.
    
Police Chief Michael McGrath says Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were tied up at the house and held there since they were in their teens or early 20s.
    
Three brothers were arrested. Authorities released no names and gave no information about them or what charges they might face.
    
Officials have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday morning.

3 MISSING WOMEN FOUND IN OHIO; 3 BROTHERS ARRESTED:

CLEVELAND (AP) - A neighbor says a woman who'd been missing for a decade was nervous, crying and appeared dressed in pajamas and old sandals as she escaped a Cleveland home where she said she'd been held captive.
    
Anna Tejeda says she was sitting on her porch with friends Monday when they heard someone kicking a door across the street and yelling for help. Tejeda speaks Spanish, so a friend translated her comments to The Associated Press.
    
She said the pleading woman, Amanda Berry, eventually kicked out the door's screen to escape and call police.
    
Two more women who separately went missing about a decade ago were found alive, and police arrested three brothers.
    
The police chief said he thinks the women were tied up at the house and held there for years.
