Cheering crowds gathered Monday night on the street near the home where police said Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight had been held since they went missing. Police said they appeared to be in good health and had been taken to a hospital to be evaluated. They said a 6-year-old also was found in the home.

On the 911 call, Berry declared, ‘‘I'm Amanda Berry. I've been on the news for the last 10 years.’’

Berry disappeared at age 16 on April 21, 2003, when she called her sister to say she was getting a ride home from her job at a Burger King.

Police said one brother, a 52-year-old, lived at the home. They released no names and no details about the others.
