In The Region:

Two of the Cleveland women kidnapped and missing for the last decade are back with their families.

A police escort returned Amanda Berry and her now 6-year-old daughter to her sister’s home on the near-west side late this morning . Three hours later, Gina DeJesus returned to her parents’ home nearby.

Police believe both women, and a third – Michelle Knight -- were held captive in a house on Seymour Avenue for years, until Berry broke through a screen door Monday night and called for help. Three brothers were arrested and kidnapping and rape charges have now been filed against the oldest, Ariel. The other two, Pedro and Onil, have been freed.

Gina DeJesus gave a thumbs’ up before she was rushed into her home. And her father, mother and extended family then returned. They said they had never given up.

And Felix DeJesus says he has a new mission:

“Now my job is never done. Now I’ve become an activist to help the rest of the kids who are missing.  So if you need anybody who can be with you 100 percent beside you, I’m the man. Come to me."

Gina’s mother, Nancy, says her daughter and the other two are doing well.

But Michelle Knight was returned to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she’s in good condition.
