This happened yesterday (early evening), but I figured I would put this here since I haven't seen any other questions about this.
May 7, 2013 (CLEVELAND) -- The woman's voice was frantic and breathless, and she was choking back tears. ''Help me. I'm Amanda Berry,'' she told a 911 dispatcher. ''I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years and I'm, I'm here, I'm free now.''
Those words led police to a house near downtown Cleveland where Berry and two other women who vanished a decade ago were found Monday, elating family members and friends who had longed to see them again.
Authorities later arrested three brothers. They released no names and gave no information about them or what charges they might face. A relative said one of them is the homeowner, his nephew Ariel Castro.
City officials have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday morning.
Police Chief Michael McGrath said he thinks Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were tied up at the house and held there since they were in their teens or early 20s.
A 6-year-old also was found in the home, but police didn't disclose the child's identity or relationship to anyone in the home. The women appeared to be in good health and were taken to a hospital to be evaluated and reunited with relatives.
The three were released from Metro Health Medical Center on Tuesday morning.

So three women missing and three brothers arrested.
I'm not sure how to make this a question, so I guess I will ask what you think the kidnappers deserve as punishment?

What a miracle! I hope they are able to rebuild their lives & put this nightmare behind them. When you get a chance, you HAVE to see the interview w/ the neighbor- he's a trip! :p As to the kidnapper & his brothers, I'm thinking letting the family members have at them, but they're probably so relieved to have them back, they wouldn't do the job. So I guess we'll leave it up to Big Bubba!
