Meanwhile this morning, the brothers Ariel Castro, 52, Pedro Castro, 54, and Onil Castro, 50, await arraignment as the men suspected of holding the women against their will. Authorities tell ABC News they plan to start questioning them today.

A judge gave Cleveland police extra time to file charges against the three men, extending the charging period from 36 hours to 48 hours.

Another interesting piece of the puzzle that has come to light is a 2004 episode of "American's Most Wanted" that features Ariel Castro's daughter, Arlene, claiming she was the last person to see Gina DeJesus before she was abducted at age 14.

"She gave me 50 cents to call my mom, and so my mom said, 'No,' that I can't go over to her house. And so I told her I couldn't and she said, 'Well, OK. I'll talk to you later,' and she just walked," Castro said.

FBI teams plan to meet with the victims soon as they begin to piece together what they endured inside the modest two-story home on Seymour Avenue.

DeJesus, Berry and her daughter are with their families now at undisclosed locations with police protection.

Police will also work to determine Jocelyn's paternity using DNA tests, Cleveland Police Deputy Chief Ed Tomba told ABC News Tuesday.

But given the circumstances of Amanda Berry's imprisonment, it was likely that Jocelyn's father was one of three brothers arrested in connection to the women's captivity.
