US police investigating the decade-long kidnap of three Ohio women found ropes and chains in the house where they were held, Cleveland police chief Michael McGrath told NBC television on Wednesday.

“We have confirmation they were bound and there were chains and ropes in the hall,” he said on the Today Show, after the three missing women were rescued and three brothers were arrested on suspicion of holding them prisoner.
