(CBS)-- More than 100 suspected illegal immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America have been found in a South Texas house where they said they went for at least three days without food or water.

Someone inside the house at the end of a dirt road in Edinburg called police Wednesday seeking help. Officers found the windows, doors locked from the outside with chains and padlocks and no light in the house.

The Associated Press based its story on reporting from the Monitor of McAllen, Tex.

Some of the people tried to flee and were tracked down by authorities. Seven people inside the house were hospitalized for treatment of dehydration and malnourishment.

Officials told The Monitor of McAllen two men were in custody. One had keys to a vehicle on the property and the other had thousands of dollars in cash.
