CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW FOX8 Cleveland Report)– Years after Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus disappeared, both girls have been found alive.

Cleveland police said both missing teenagers were found Monday at a home on Seymour Ave.; along with a third girl, Michelle Knight.

Police were not releasing details on the circumstances surrounding Knight’s disappearance.

Late Monday night, police said three arrests have been made in connection with the girls’ disappearances.

The men, ages 54, 52 and 50, are brothers.

One of them has been identified as Ariel Castro.

DeJesus and Berry were in the Seymour Ave. home the entire time.

Police said they initially received a 911 call from Berry.

Berry, DeJesus and Knight are at MetroHealth Medical Center.

A doctor said the girls are in fair condition; but that’s all the hospital would reveal.

Cleveland police will release more information at a press conference at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday.

From CNN:

Neighbor Charles Riley was sitting down to a fast food meal when he heard screaming.

“I see this girl going nuts trying to get out of a house,” he told CNN affiliate WEWS. “I go on the porch and she says, ‘help me get out. I’ve been in here a long time.'”

Figuring it was a domestic dispute, Riley kicked in the bottom of the door and the woman came out with a little girl and said, “Call 911, My name is Amanda Berry,” according to Riley, who admitted he didn’t recognize the name or know she was missing.
