Three brothers are to be questioned by police on suspicion of the disappearance of three American women in Ohio. The three suspects were taken in by police in Cleveland, Ohio, after the trio of women – who had been missing for around a decade – were found in the US state.
According to reports, the brothers are named as Ariel, Onil and Pedro Castro, who are all in their fifties.
It is understood that any charges relating to the three men must be made by Wednesday evening (local time) 8th May, as police were given an extended cut-off time for this.
The three women disappeared separately but were found in a house together, apparently in captivity. As confirmed by officials, they are; Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight, who went missing from 2002 to 2004.
The women were supposedly presumed dead by many. News relating to the three cases emerged when Amanda Berry made a phone call to the emergency service. Details of the call have been released by police.
She said: “Help me! I'm Amanda Berry... I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years and I'm here. I'm free now.”
The trio were taken to hospital following their rescue. It is believed that some of the women have now left hospital.
Reportedly a photograph has been released showing Amanda Berry with her daughter which was taken at the hospital.
As reported by The Telegraph, police have said that Amanda Berry does have a daughter.
