Cleveland Kidnapping News Conference
CLEVELAND (AP) - Two of the women held captive for a decade at a run-down Cleveland house were welcomed home by cheering crowds of loved ones and neighbors with balloons and banners Wednesday as police built a case against the three brothers under arrest.
Gina DeJesus, who disappeared in 2004, arrived home in the afternoon to chants of "Gina! Gina!" Neither DeJesus, who is in her early 20s, nor her family had any immediate comment.
Earlier in the day, Amanda Berry, 27, arrived at her sister's home, which was similarly festooned with dozens of colorful balloons and signs, one reading "We Never Lost Hope Mandy." Hundreds cheered wildly. Berry's sister thanked the public for its support but asked for privacy.
The third captive, Michelle Knight, 32, was reported in good condition at Metro Health Medical Center, which a day earlier had reported that all three victims had been released. There was no immediate explanation from the hospital.
