CLEVELAND (AP) - The sign outside a Cleveland home reads, "Welcome Home Gina."
It's the home of the parents of Gina DeJesus, one of the three women who'd been missing for about a decade and were found yesterday in a home in downtown Cleveland. Police say they'd apparently been held captive in the house since they disappeared. Three brothers, including the owner of the home, are under arrest.
Police say the 6-year-old girl who was also found in the home is believed to be the daughter of Amanda Berry, one of the three women who'd been missing.
An aunt of Gina DeJesus says the women all showed great strength to survive in the years since they disappeared. Sandra Ruiz spoke after visiting with all three women.
They've been released from a hospital, and taken to an undisclosed location in the Cleveland suburbs.
Meanwhile, there are reports that police may have missed some earlier opportunities to find the three missing women. Neighbors of the house where the women were found say police were called twice in recent years to investigate suspicious activity there. One man says he heard pounding on doors at the house. Another neighbor says her daughter once saw a naked woman crawling on her hands and knees in the backyard.
