(Elizabethton, TN) The celebrations following the rescue of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight are spanning the country.

In Tennessee, Johnny Berry, as well as lots of aunts, uncles and cousins are waiting to see Amanda and her 6-year-old daughter.

Berry returned home Tuesday to her sister’s home on West 129th Street after living in captivity for a decade.

Berry’s cousin, Crystal Milton, said Amanda’s sister Beth would not leave Cleveland after the girls’ mother died in 2006.

“She wouldn’t leave because of Amanda, she said ‘if Mandy ever comes home, I have to be here.’ She said ‘I’ll never leave until we know something for sure,” said Milton.

Milton hopes Amanda and Beth will now move to Tennessee.
