Missing US women: Nightmare over, says Cleveland FBI

Police in Cleveland, Ohio, say they are rejoicing along with the families of three women who have been found alive about a decade since they went missing.

Speaking at a news briefing, Steve Anthony, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Cleveland office, said: "The nightmare is over... The healing can now begin".

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

Their discovery followed a dramatic bid for freedom by Amanda Berry on Monday, helped by a neighbour.

Three brothers have been arrested in connection with the case.
