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 today [May 6, 2013] in a residential area just south of downtown, and three brothers were arrested, police said.

One of those arrested is a 52-year-old man, police say. The women were being treated at the hospital. One of the women reportedly has a baby [via rape by her abductor], who is now 6, since she was reported missing, the Associated Press reports. 
One of the women, Amanda Berry [shown at left], was last heard from in 2003, when she called her sister to say she was getting a ride home from the Burger King restaurant where she worked, reported the Cleveland TV station WEWS. She was to turn 17 the day after she disappeared.
Another of the women, Gina DeJesus, was 14 when she went missing on April 2, 2004. She was walking home from school.
The third woman, Michelle Knight, 32, had been missing since 2002.
[The mains suspect is school bus driver] Ariel Castro, the owner of the home where the women were found, has been arrested, according to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer. More
