Cleveland neighbour: 'A naked lady in the backyard'

Cleveland resident Elsie Cintron has spoken to the BBC about what she saw at the house where alleged captor Ariel Castro lived.

Police have praised the bravery of three women found alive on Monday evening in a house in Cleveland, Ohio, after they vanished about a decade ago.

Amanda Berry disappeared aged 16 in 2003, Gina DeJesus went missing aged 14 a year later, and Michelle Knight vanished in 2002 aged around 19.

School bus driver Ariel Castro and his two brothers have been arrested.

Elsie Cintron said she had suspicions after her granddaughter said she had seen a "naked lady crawling in the backyard of his house".
