Authorities in Cleveland are trying to determine how and why three missing women were kidnapped then held captive for around a decade in a city neighborhood.
All three were rescued when one of the women escaped and called police yesterday. Cleveland Police say leads in the missing persons cases had been investigated for years without success.
The three women found safe in a Cleveland home after disappearing a decade ago are being reunited with family and friends. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were released this morning from MetroHealth Medical Center. Doctors say they’re physically and mentally okay.
3 Women Found Alive After Being Held In Captivity For 10 Years
Now police say a 6-year-old girl found in the house where three missing women were kept for years is the daughter of one of them. They say the girl is believed to be Amanda Berry’s daughter.
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.
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.
