Simply an amazing story.
One girl missing since 2003 and another missing since 2004 and another woman, missing since 2000 have been found alive, apparently held captive all these years in a Cleveland home.
Amanda Berry was 16 when she went missing and Gina Dejesus was 14.
From reports on the news it looks like Amanda was able to escape with her child and make it to a neighbors house who called police who went to the house and also found Gina inside.

According to news reports, Michelle Knight was around 20 years old when she went missing in 2000.

Oh my goodness... Thank goodness they've been rescued. I hope that they catch the criminal(s) who held them!

ETA: This says he's been arrested. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index...rry_dejes.html

This says there were 3 missing women found there. http://www.19actionnews.com/story/22...eveland-police

How horrible but so wonderful that they are alive! It's so sad that the one girl's mom passed away before she knew her DD was still alive. Scary that there are probably others out there being held captive by different monsters that no one knows about.

As hard as that is to swallow, I have no doubt that it's true.

I know, the thought freaks me out & makes me so sad. Those teens were probably considered runaways at some point and here they were captive, possibly near their families. Sickening. I would honestly drive myself nuts if one of my kids was missing. I absolutely hate the unknown.

Our mouths dropped open over here, especially at the fact they were found together. Glad they are reunited with their families and I'm sure Amanda's mom is throwing a huge party in heaven right now.

There is an article from an old independent Cleveland newspaper that was written years ago in the case by a person with the same exact name as the man arrested. Very crazy.

I can only imagine how thrilled their families must be. So glad these young women were found alive.

I was floored to see this breaking news this evening! It is a shame that the mother of one of the girls has passed and not able to see this moment. News reports indicate that there was a 3 year old rescued as well. Thoughts and prayers are with these (now) young women and their families.

Watching the news now. The mother of one of the girls passed away in 2006 from heart failure. Her family said she died of a broken heart. So sad.

I wonder if Jaci Dugard will step in to help these ladies cope.

CNN is saying 3 WOMAN found alive. Neighbors who took in Amanda Berry so she could call police make it sound like they have seen 2 small children there, so 2 of the girls could have given birth while held captive.

They just played the phone call of Amanda Berry calling 911 from neighbors house.

Amanda Berry - now has a 3 yr old girl
Gina DeJesuss
Michelle Knight

Guy is 52 yrs old.
