Three girls who vanished a decade ago have been found alive in a Cleveland home along with another girl. Amanda Berry went missing in 2003, Gina DeJesus disappeared a year later, and Michelle Knight hadn't been seen since 2002, when she was 21. Other "small children" were also found at the house, police said Monday night.

A 52-year-old man is in custody tonight after neighbors of the house near Cleveland heard screaming and saw one of the women trying to escape from the house. The suspect, Ariel Castro, may have written articles about the disappearance of the young women.


Berry, then 16, was apparently kidnapped in April of 2003 while returning home from her job at a Burger King. DeJesus vanished on her way home from school in 2004, when she was only 14 years old.
