Gina DeJesus, 23, Michelle Knight, 30, and Amanda Berry, 26 , and her six-year-old daughter fled the house in Cleveland, Ohio.
Ariel Castro, 52, and his two brothers have been arrested.
Frantic Amanda choked back tears as she told police Im free after she escaped the dungeon.
Amanda fled the hell-hole thanks to a hero neighbour before her dramatic 911 call ended the victims ordeal .
It had been feared that Amanda and the other captives Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight had been murdered.
After escaping the house on Monday just three miles from where they each went missing between 2002 and 2004, they named their captor as 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who tonight was in custody with his two brothers.
The women, aged between 14 and 22 when they disappeared, spent today in hospital before being given the all-clear by doctors and returning to their overwhelmed families.
Amanda, now 26, was joined by her six-year-old daughter who she gave birth to during the years in the dungeon as she hugged her weeping relatives.
Chilling details began to emerge tonight of how the victims were held captive in a basement dungeon.
Police sources said suspect Ariel Castro kept Michelle, Amanda and Gina tied up with chains and tape at the home in Cleveland, Ohio.
The insider said they were kept in different rooms and were possibly untied at different times.
Officers also revealed the three women had multiple pregnancies.
There was evidence of as many as five children being born while the women were held hostage.
One of the victims suffered as many as three miscarriages because she was so malnourished.
Reports also told how the women were beaten so badly they lost other babies.
Police were today seen examining dug up areas in the back garden.

I wonder if the father, along with his two brothers (the girl's uncles), raped the little girl?
I hope the police find the bodies or some trace of the little babies who were murdered.
Kids just don't stand a chance today.
Didn’t they just let the 2 brothers go? The police seemed confident it was only Ariel Castro responsible for all of it.
Remember, early reports are often completely wrong.
All these Castro bros need to be executed.....this is disgusting and horrifying what they did. And even more digusting if the Criminal Rights nutjobs fight their execution
Anyone notice that when the house was first discovered it was flying a Puerto Rican flag ?
But now, with crime scene tape surrounding the property, the flag is an American flag?
What’s up with that????
I have some rope laying around if someone needs it. Just sayin’.
Puerto Ricans are not immigrants they are citizens of a United States Territory.
The two brothers have not been charged based on witness testimony that they did not participate in the kidnapping.
They are from Puerto Rico. As a result, they are automatically US citizens.
I don’t know. Sounds like they are immigrants in the broadest sense. When I (finally) move to WY, I’ll be an immigrant.
Wait till they fly the Confederate flag.....we’ll know there is serious charges being considered by the police and the prosecutor’s offices.
somehow the slaves rescued from the Saudi diplomats house in the US is not very newworthy?
Further information... I find it incredible that police had reports of a naked woman on a leash crawling around the back yard and they just spoke with the homeowner!
I’m wondering if mental problems ran in the family as Castro’s daughter is in jail for killing her baby and attempting to kill herself.
Thank goodness Amanda Berry was able to get loose or they’d probably never have been found.
What employment will look like in the near future, after special constituents’ politicians are through with our Second and Fourth amendments.
Stuff that makes you go, hmmmmm...
First it's just the PR flag.
Then just the U.S. flag.
Evidently there was not a single shred of evidence that the brothers were involved. They were with their brother when they were found. The two brothers had minor outstanding bench warrants for misdemeanors.
The girls did not know about the brothers.
I doubt one guy is responsible for it all. I find it hard to believe that others, relatives, didn’t know about it.
Rope? Gasoline is only $3.45 a gallon.
Guess the flag switch is to prevent stereotyping.
