Three women who have been missed for years were found alive in Cleveland, having been held captive in a home for about a decade.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight are safe tonight.

“Today, the Cleveland Division of Police confirms that three missing girls were located in a house on Seymour Avenue in the Second District,” Police Chief Michael McGrath said in a press release. “All three women … seem to be in good health. A 52 year old Hispanic male has been placed under arrest regarding this incident.”

Knight disappeared in 2002. Berry and DeJesus were teen-agers when they disappeared in 2003 and 2004, respectively.

Authorities released the 9-1-1 call that Berry made just before 6 p.m. after breaking out of the house where she had been held captive.

"Help me, I am Amanda Berry,” she stated. “I’ve been kidnapped and I’ve been missing for 10 years. And I’m here and I’m free now.”

Three people are in custody, including the main suspect, police said.

McGrath said a press conference was scheduled for this morning “to provide more details surrounding these missing persons investigations."

If you have not seen it, find the interview with Charles, the guy who called 911. Instant classic.

Give the kidnappers a "fair trial" and then execute 'em.

Looks like a Puerto Rican flag hanging on the porch.
