UPDATE: The three Cleveland women, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight all disappeared in separate cases between 2002 and 2004.

Amanda had been missing since April 2003 when she disappeared after getting a ride home from work. DeJesus disappeared the following April from roughly the same area. Knight had been missing since 2002. 

On The Morning Show, we talked live with WKYC anchor, Chris Tye about the investigation.



CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland woman who was missing for a decade and was found with two other missing women has told police she was kidnapped but is "free now."

On a recorded 911 call Monday, Amanda Berry said she had been taken by someone and pleaded for police officers to arrive at the home on Cleveland's west side before he returned.

She told the dispatcher: "I've been kidnapped, and I've been missing for 10 years. And I'm here. I'm free now."

Police say Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight have been taken to a hospital to reunite with relatives and seem to be in good health.

Police say a 52-year-old man was arrested. There's no immediate word on charges. Police plan a news conference Tuesday.
