Cleveland - The three young women held captive in a Cleveland house for as long as a decade have been reunited with their families, a report said on Tuesday.
According to USA Today, the three women, and a 6-year-old girl believed to be the daughter of one of the women, are in " fairly good" physical condition.
The website reported police as saying that they will move slowly before pressing the women for details on their ordeal.
"Right now, we want to let them spend some time with their families and take this process very, very slowly and respectful for their families and the young girls' needs," Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba reportedly said at a news conference.
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were freed late on Monday afternoon after Berry's screams alerted a neighbour who helped her escape, the website said.
The 6-year old girl rescued is believed to be Berry's daughter.
Three suspects have been arrested, brothers Ariel, Pedro and O'Neal Castro, who are aged between 50 and 54.
