In 2002, Michele Knight, then 21, vanished. Amanda Berry has been missing since 2003. She was kidnapped on the eve of her 17th birthday. Georgina "Gina" DeJesus was kidnapped the following year. She was just 14.

All three of the women were found alive in the same home in Cleveland on Monday night. Police arrested a 52-year-old man, identified as former school bus driver Ariel Castro by an area councilman. Two others, identified as his brothers, ages 50 and 54, also have been arrested, though they did not live in the home.

Here's how the coverage unfolded, including a shocking Associated Press interview with neighbor Charles Ramsey, who helped free Amanda Berry, and her frantic 911 call via CNN and Piers Morgan.
