A report says that Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro called the mother of one of his victims while she was in captivity and told her she was OK.

Castro also told investigators during a videotaped interrogation that opportunities were missed for capturing him while he held the women he kidnapped.

Castro says in the video obtained by NBC's "Today Show" and first reported Friday that he called the mother of Amanda Berry and told her that Berry was OK and was his wife now.

He says he hung up and they didn't have a conversation.

Berry's mother died before Berry was freed in May.

Castro told investigators video surveillance near the school of another victim should have tipped police to him.

The 53-year-old Castro committed suicide in prison Tuesday night.
