CLEVELAND (AP) - The aunt of one of three women held captive for about a decade in Cleveland thanked police for their help, asked the public for time and privacy to heal and urged the community not to retaliate against the suspects.

Sandra Ruiz spoke to reporters after Gina DeJesus (deh-HAY'-zoos), 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.
