Two of the three Cleveland captives are home again, with only Michelle Knight still hospitalized. Gina DeJesus returned to her parents' house this afternoon as neighbors cheered and chanted, and while she didn't address the public, DeJesus flashed a thumbs-up sign upon leaving the vehicle. Her parents did speak, and they urged people to keep an eye on children in their neighborhoods, reports the Plain Dealer. “You have to come out and watch the kids, even though you’re not their parent,” said Felix DeJesus. “Get up early, walk the dog, do something while the kids walk to school.”

His wife, Nancy, said this would be the best Mother's Day she could possibly imagine. Earlier, Amanda Berry returned to her sister's house, and her family said she would speak publicly when she's ready. Knight, meanwhile, is in good condition, though it's unclear when she will be released from the hospital. Charges were expected later today against Ariel Castro and his two brothers, reports AP.
