The grandmother of one of the three women held for years at a house in Cleveland is overjoyed at their release. Fern Gentry says the discovery of Amanda Berry and her fellow captives is the answer to a prayer. (SOUNDBITE)(English) FERN GENTRY, GRANDMOTHER OF AMANDA BERRY, SAYING: "We had so many hopes and we go so many times that they said they had found her and they hadn't found her. And every time you got your hopes up and then it fell again." Three brothers named as Pedro, Ariel and Onil Castro, all in their 50s, are being questioned about the women's captivity. Investigators are still trying to work out how Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were held without discovery for around a decade. They were held at a house in their own neighbourhood. The relief of their families is also being shared by those who've suffered similar captivity. They include Elizabeth Smart, held by a drifter and his wife for nine months when she was just 14. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ELIZABETH SMART, KIDNAPPING SURVIVOR, SAYING: "I am so incredibly awe-struck with them, just because of the courage they've shown, the strength that they've shown." The mother of Jaycee Dugard, held for 18 years, says she too feels the joy of the captives' release. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JAYCEE DUGARD'S MOTHER TERRY PROBYN, SAYING: "Three girls are alive and I feel the same relief and joy that I felt when Jayce was returned to me safely after eighteen hellish years." U.S. investigators searching the Castro brothers' home say they're also searching other properties but haven't given any further details.
