CLEVELAND, Ohio (NBC News) - Three women who went missing a decade ago were found alive Monday in a home in Cleveland, Ohio, according to police.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight appeared to be in good health and were talking after being discovered in a home on the city's west side, Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGarth said in a statement.
A neighbor who heard screams from the house rushed to the dwelling where he found the women, and one of them used his cell phone to call emergency-911, according to police.
All three women have since been taken to a hospital, where they were reported to be in good medical condition, police said.
NBC Cleveland affiliate WKYC reported that one of the three was holding a baby.
A 52-year-old man has been placed under arrest.
The women's disappearance has been a mystery to Cleveland authorities for almost ten years.
Berry, now 27, was reported missing on April 21, 2003 after she phoned her sister to say she was getting a ride home from her job at a fast food restaurant.
About one year later, then 14-year-old DeJesus went missing when walking home from school.
Knight went missing around the year 2000, police said, but since she was 20 years old at the time, authorities assumed she may have run off on her own. Cops on Monday said all three women were held against their will.
Earlier this year a prison inmate was sentenced for admitting he gave authorities fraudulent tips about Berry's remains. Robert Wolford, who is serving time for killing a homeless man, told police the woman was buried under a Cleveland lot, which was then dug up by backhoes.
And two men arrested for questioning about DeJesus' disappearance were released in 2006 after police failed to find the woman's remains during a search of their house.
Police have scheduled a press conference for Tuesday morning.
