Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were last seen in a west side neighborhood in 2002, 2003 and 2004 respectively.

They were evaluated at MetroHealth Medical Center and then released into the care of the FBI special victim specialist unit.

A child also escaped the home with them.

Three men were taken into custody, including Ariel Castro, 52, who lived at the residence, and his brothers Pedro and Onil Castro.
