Saved kidnapped victims indicate there may be more victims than initially thought

After three women were freed from the house where they had been kept prisoner for a decade, police are searching the house for evidence for more women. One of the three victims already saved told police that she's not sure how many women were there since each woman was kept in a separate room. Fox News has more on the story:
Cleveland police are searching properties Wednesday morning near the home called a 'house of horrors' after they were reportedly alerted by one of the kidnap victims that there may be more women.

Details of a possible fourth victim came to light during police interviews with the oldest victim,  Michelle Knight, who reportedly said there was another girl at the home about 10 years ago, but disappeared.

In 2007, Ashley Summers, a 14 year old, disappeared in the same neighborhood. Initially it was believed Summers was a runaway but a few years later, police saw a potential link with the other missing girls.

Knight reportedly told police she was unsure of how many other women may have been in the house because they were all kept in separate locked rooms.
