ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (AP) - One of three women who were found in Cleveland, Ohio, after disappearing a decade ago answered her Tennessee family's prayers with a phone call.

Johnny Berry's 27-year-old daughter, Amanda, called him Monday night at his home in Elizabethton and told him she loved him before they both started crying. WJHL-TV ( ) says Berry told his daughter he never lost hope he would hear from her again.

Police say Berry, 32-year-old Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus, who is about 23, had apparently been held captive in a house south of downtown Cleveland since they were in their teens or early 20s. Three brothers were arrested. No charges have been filed.

The women were discovered after Berry kicked a door, screamed for help and called 911.

In addition to Berry's father, her grandparents and cousins also live in Elizabethton, where Amanda Berry visited through the years.
