CLEVELAND — A second woman rescued after being held captive for about a decade in Ohio is now home with her family.
Gina DeJesus, who disappeared in 2004, arrived home Wednesday afternoon to chants of “Gina! Gina!”
Wearing a bright hooded shirt, DeJesus was escorted into her home by a woman with her arm around her.
Earlier Wednesday, Amanda Berry arrived at her sister’s home. Berry’s sister made a brief statement thanking the public for their support but asking for privacy.
Charges against the man who owns the home where three women were found and his two brothers are expected to come Wednesday.
A 911 call led police to his house near downtown Cleveland where Berry, DeJesus and the third woman, Michelle Knight, were found Monday. All three had vanished over the last decade.
