Three Ohio Women Held Captive for 10 Years Are Free After Daring Escape

Missing Teens Found Alive In Cleveland Home

There’s rejoicing in Cleveland after the stunning discovery that three women who disappeared separately a decade ago are all still alive.

Police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight had been held captive in a Cleveland house and that three brothers are in custody.

A neighbor says one of the women was nervous, crying and appeared dressed in pajamas and old sandals as she escaped the house 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.
