CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Ohio kidnapping victim Gina DeJesus is expected to soon return home to her parents' house on Cleveland's west side.

Shortly before, fellow victim Amanda Berry had come home after 10 years in captivity.

As the van approached with Gina DeJesus inside, supporters waiting near her home began applause and chants of "Gina! Gina!"

Her father was the first to step out of the van, cheerfully throwing his fist in the air and smiling at the crowd there. Seconds later, Gina exited the van and hurried inside her home. She did not speak to media.

Berry's homecoming happened around noon. When she arrived home to a large gathered group of people, she said that the whole situation was simply overwhelming to her and that she would not be making a public statement at that time. Berry had previously indicated that she would make a statement from the porch after arriving at her sister's home in Cleveland.
