CLEVELAND, OHIO —

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland officials say they have no records of anyone calling about criminal activity at the house where three kidnapped women were kept for years before being found.

A frantic 911 call led police to a house near downtown Cleveland, where the three women were found Monday.

Officials say three brothers, ages 50 to 54, are in custody.

Police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were tied up at the house and held there since they were in their teens or early 20s. Knight disappeared in 2002, Berry in 2003 and DeJesus about a year after that.

Police said Tuesday they went to the home in 2004 for an unrelated investigation but no one answered the door.
