CLEVELAND -- Cleveland's police chief says three brothers have been arrested after three women missing for years were found in a home and one said she'd been kidnapped.

Ariel Castro, 52, was among those arrested. Police have released no other names and given no details about the others arrested or what charges they might face.

Police source tells WKYC that police with search warrants are particularly concerned about the backyard because they believe there is some "disturbed soil" back there.

Police Chief Michael McGrath says a 6-year-old also was in the home. Dozens of police officers and sheriff's deputies remained at the scene late Monday awaiting a warrant to search the building.

Authorities say the women have been taken to Metrohealth Medical Center to reunite with relatives and seem to be in good health.

Michelle Knight had been missing since 2002, Amanda Berry since 2003 and Gina DeJesus since 2004. Berry and DeJesus disappeared when they were teenagers.
