CLEVELAND - The third woman kept in captivity for a decade in a Cleveland house has been released from the hospital and is asking for her privacy.

MetroHealth Medical Center spokeswoman Phyllis Marino says Michelle Knight left the hospital this afternoon but declined to comment further on Knight's condition or where she was going.

Earlier today, Knight said in a statement she is in good spirits and grateful for the fund created to aid the victims.

A missing-person report on Knight filed one day after she disappeared in 2002 said without elaboration that she has a mental condition and often is confused about her surroundings.

Former Cleveland school bus driver Ariel Castro has been charged with rape and kidnapping for keeping Knight and two other women captive.
