3 Women Found Alive After Disappearing 10 Years Ago

Three women, two of them missing for a decade since they were teens in Cleveland, have been found alive, according to police.

A 52-year-old man has been arrested, police say. The women were being treated at the hospital. One of the women reportedly had a baby since she came up missing, according to reports.

One of the women, Amanda Berry, was last heard from in 2003, when she called her sister to say she was getting a ride home from the Burger King restaurant where she worked, reported the Cleveland TV station WEWS. She was to turn 17 the day after she disappeared.

The other woman, Gina DeJesus, was 14 when she went missing on April 2, 2004. She was walking home from school.

The third woman, Michelle Knight, 32, was missing since she was 20.

Ariel Castro, the owner of the home where the women were found, has been arrested, according to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer. Live TV reports showed hundreds of people and media gathered outside the Cleveland home, where the women were found.

A recording of the 911 call reveals a frantic Berry calling for police.

"Help, I'm Amanda Berry ... I need police. I've been kidnapped," she says. "I've been missing for 10 years. I'm here and I'm free now." She asked that police respond quickly, before Castro returned to the home.

The women were being evaluating by doctors at the MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland. At a press conference outside the hospital, Dr. Gerald Maloney said the three women appeared to be in fair condition at the moment.

"They are safe; we are evaluating their medical needs," Maloney said. As he spoke, a man in the crowd of onlookers shouted, "We love you, Amanda," and the crowd cheered.

The women all "seem to be in good health," Cleveland police reported. Police have scheduled a press conference for Tuesday.
