CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland police say the two brothers of the man accused of keeping women captive in his house have been released from custody.

Police announced on Thursday afternoon that 54-year-old Pedro Castro and 50-year-old Onil Castro had been released from jail. Police didn't release any more information, and the men's whereabouts were not immediately known.

They were arrested Monday with 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who is being held on $8 million bond on charges rape and the kidnappings of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, as well as Berry's child born in captivity. The brothers were not charged in that case.

Pedro Castro pleaded no contest to an unrelated open-container charge in court Monday. Two unrelated misdemeanor charges against Onil Castro were dropped.
