RESCUED: 10-year ordeal over for 3 Ohio women

Cleveland, Ohio, law enforcement authorities on Tuesday hailed the rescue of three Ohio women who were missing for 10 years.

"The healing can now begin," the FBI's Stephen Anthony told reporters. "As you can imagine, words can't express the feelings felt by all -- yes, law enforcement professionals do cry." Anthony said that the case remains "an ongoing investigation."

The three women who were missing for about a decade were all found alive Monday.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight all vanished separately, but were being held captive in the same house. 

Then, suddenly, Monday, Berry managed to claw her way out through a broken door, with a young girl, possibly her daughter.

She made a breathless call to 911 from a neighbor's house.

Police quickly moved in on the house and rescued the other two women.

They arrested a 52-year-old former bus driver -- identified by a local councilman as Ariel Castro -- and his two brothers.

Berry was last seen after finishing her shift at a Burger King in Cleveland in 2003. It was the eve of her 17th birthday.

Georgina "Gina" DeJesus disappeared nearly a year later, in April 2004. She was 14.

Michele Knight vanished in 2002, at age 21, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper.
