Three young women who vanished a decade ago near their homes in Cleveland were found only miles from where they disappeared, and three brothers have been arrested in relation to the incident, according to police.
Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michele Knight were found alive, and Cleveland Police Commander Keith Sulver said all three women were getting medical treatment but seemed to be in good condition.
“All of them are doing well. They all look good,” he said. “They’re all talking. They’re aware of everything that’s going on, and we’re just very happy that they’re safe and in good condition.”
Dr. Gerald Maloney with Metro Health Medical Center said tonight that the women were safe and that the hospital was evaluating their medical needs, and how long they’ll stay. The spokesman confirmed that the women are in fair condition at the moment.
“This isn’t the ending we usually get,” Maloney said. “We’re very happy, very happy.”
The victims are being examined for possible abuse at the hospital, law enforcement sources told ABC News.
Police confirmed to ABC News affiliate WEWS that one of the men taken into custody is 52-year-old Ariel Castro. Police have not released the names of Castro’s brother but said they were 50 and 54 years old. Chargers were expected to come within the next 36 hours.
Police have not said how the women were found, but neighbors said they heard cries for help coming from a house, and when they went to investigate kicked open the door of the home to get the women out.
Neighbor Charles Ramsey said that he was eating at McDonald’s when he heard a girl screaming.
