Ariel Castro -- a 52-year-old Cleveland Municipal School District bus driver who’s lived at the home since 1992 – was arrested, along with his two brothers.

Local station WOIO-TV reported that a source said authorities saw chains hanging from the ceilings of the home, and believe the women were tied up at times.

A huge local story, Amanda’s disappearance went national in 2009 when Oprah Winfrey devoted an episode of her former daytime talk show to it.
