Cleveland police give details on Ohio women

9:16 a.m. Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight are the names of the three women found at 2207 Seymour Avenue.

“These ladies didn’t give up, and neither did the police force. And yes, law enforcement did cry” stated Cleveland police force. “This has been a traumatic experience for them.”

They were sent to Metro Health Medical center for immediate attention where their families later were able to see them for the first time.

Three suspects are in custody at this time and the case is an ongoing investigation. The police force states there are several unanswered questions. Why were they kidnapped? How were they taken? How did they remain undetected all this time?

“For the families, prayers have been answered, and justice has been served.”


8:45 a.m. Once-missing Cleveland women released from hospital, go home to families.

CLEVELAND — Three women who went missing separately about a decade ago, when they were in their teens or early 20s, had been tied up but were found alive Monday in a residential area just south of downtown, and three brothers were arrested, police said.

One of the women told a 911 dispatcher the person who had taken her was gone, and she pleaded for police officers to come and get her, saying, “I’m free now.”

“I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for 10 years,” she told the dispatcher. “And I’m here. I’m free now.”

Berry disappeared at age 16 on April 21, 2003, when she called her sister to say she was getting a ride home from her job at a Burger King. DeJesus went missing at age 14 on her way home from school about a year later. They were found just a few miles from where they had gone missing
