CLEVELAND (AP) -- Police say a third woman found at a Cleveland home also had been reported missing and a man has been arrested.

Police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight were found Monday and seemed to be in good health.

Berry and DeJesus disappeared as teenagers in 2003 and 2004, respectively. The Plain Dealer newspaper reports Knight had been missing since 2002.

Police say a 52-year-old man was arrested. There's no immediate word on charges.

Previous story

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cleveland police say two women who went missing as teenagers about a decade ago have been found alive in a residential area about 2 miles south of downtown.

Cheering crowds gathered Monday night on the street near the home where police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and a third woman were found earlier in the day. The identity of the third woman hasn't been confirmed.

Berry disappeared April 21, 2003, when she called her sister to say she was getting a ride home from her job at a Burger King. DeJesus went missing on her way home from school about a year later.
