Backstory – Three girls who went missing a decade ago have been found alive after they were kept in the dungeon of a Cleveland, Ohio home. Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were found alive on Monday inside a house alongside a third woman identified as Michelle Knight. A 52-year-old man named Ariel Castro and his two brothers have been arrested and are in police custody in connection to the case.

UPDATE 1: This story is getting even more odd. Here is a video with Charles Ramsey – the neighbor who saw Amanda Berry trying to escape from inside the house and he went to help her. Incredible Video:
Missing Since 2002, 2003 and 2004 !
Found Today, May 7th 2013
One of the women called 911 after breaking out of the house where she had been living.
“Help me, I am Amanda Berry,” she said, her voice distraught and quick, according to an audio recording of the call released Monday night. “I’ve been kidnapped and I’ve been missing for 10 years. And I’m here and I’m free now.”
A 52-year-old man, Ariel Castro, has been arrested, Cleveland police said on their website.
The three women appeared to be in good health, police said.
“I am thankful that Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight have been found alive,” Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson said. “We have many unanswered questions regarding this case and the investigation will be ongoing. Again, I am thankful that these three young ladies are found and alive.”
Angie Garcia, whose aunt lives across the street from where the women were found, said Berry ran over to the house Monday and begged to use the phone. Berry, who was wearing a wig, told the aunt who she was and then asked to use the phone to call 911.
The women and two young children came out of the house across the street, Garcia said.
“We never saw the girls there and we were always outside,” she said. “We only saw the guy.”
Berry and DeJesus were in their teens when they disappeared in 2003 and 2004, CNN affiliate WEWS reported. Knight went missing in 2002, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. (More to the story here)
The psycho, Ariel Castro, even wrote an article about the abduction of Gina Dejesus for the local paper:
