According to the initial report, the women told investigators that they were chained in the basement but later were moved upstairs to rooms on the second floor. They were allowed out of the home only twice, and then just briefly.
Since their release, Knight and Gina DeJesus, the third captive, have talked on the phone at least once, according to a source who has been talking to all the victims' families and attorneys.
One of the them asked to speak with the other after they were freed, said the source.
The women are learning how to use new, and not-so-new, technology they missed out on during their years in captivity, the source said.
Who is Michelle Knight?
Knight's disappearance generated far less publicity and attention than did those of Berry and DeJesus, and a level of mystery still surrounds her case.
Cleveland police removed Knight's name from an FBI database of missing people in November 2003 -- 15 months after her family reported her missing -- police said. They did so after "failing to locate a parent, guardian or other reporting person to confirm that Ms. Knight was still missing."
Police said, though, that her missing person's case remained open and was checked on as recently as November 2012.
As of last week, her family still didn't know exactly where she was.
Knight hadn't spoken yet with her mother, Barbara, a family spokesperson said. In fact, Knight's family had no idea where she was and had asked police for information on her whereabouts.
What little is known about Knight's whereabouts comes from a source close to the investigation, who told CNN that Knight "is in a safe place and very comfortable." The source did not specify further.
There were reports that Knight was at the DeJesus home, and there was a lot of activity there Saturday morning, but Knight was not there.
The Knight family apparently has a fractured history.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Knight became pregnant and dropped out of school.
Her mother told the newspaper that she then became involved with an abusive man, who, she thinks, hurt her toddler grandson.
The incident reportedly kicked off "a chain of events that led Michelle to lose custody of the child."
Knight vanished soon after that, on a day she was set to make a court appearance in the custody case, Barbara Knight told the Plain Dealer.
Times weren't always so tough for Knight though.
Her mother recalled happier days, when her daughter had lots of friends and fed apples to a neighbor's pony.
She liked fire engines and art class.
After helping her mother deliver a litter of puppies, Knight decided she likely wanted to be a veterinarian, Barbara Knight told the Plain Dealer.
"I really miss her," she reportedly said. "She was my daughter, but she was also my friend. She tried to make the best of her life and wanted to finish school. She never got the chance to go back."
