(Cleveland)- Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were in the MetroHealth Emergency Department Monday night, and of this morning have been released.

That comes from Tina Shaerban Arundel, the hospital's Media & Communications Specialist.

The hospital released a statement saying, "We join the community in celebrating the safe return of these three women."

Dr. Christine Alexander is host of the MetroHealth and You Radio Show on Newsradio WTAM 1100. Dr. Alexander says due to HIPPA laws, she can not give specifics about the women's health.
