Three girls who were abducted 10 years ago were found alive in the basement of a house in Ohio where they were apparently held captive in chains, according to Daily Mail. 

Amanda Berry, 26, and Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michelle Knight, 32, escaped from the Cleveland house just a few miles from the city where they disappeared. A prime suspect in the kidnapping case has been taken into custody along with his two brothers. Ariel Castro, 52, of Cleveland, Ohio, arrested Monday after Berry escaped and called police. Castro was a school bus driver in Cleveland until last year. Records showed that he was arrested for domestic violence and disorderly conduct in December of 1993.

Castro had lived in the house where the women were found since 1992. His two unnamed brothers are reportedly aged 50 and 54. They did not live with Castro.

The rescue came after a neighbor heard Berry, who went missing at the age of 16, scream for help when their captor left the house. Police believe the women were tied up in the home.

Neighbor Charles Ramsey, heard screaming from the house. He told WEWS-TV he saw Berry at a door screaming, "Help me get out! I've been in here a long time."

'We had to kick open the bottom," he said. "Lucky on that door it was aluminum. It was cheap. She climbed out with her daughter."

As Berry fled the home and ran across the street to call police, she was holding the hand of a young girl.

'Help me I'm Amanda Berry... I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for ten years and I'm here. I'm free now,' Berry said in the call to police, which has been publicly released.

A six-year-old girl was also found in the home, after one of the captives gave birth while being held against her will.
