CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Michelle Knight returned to Ariel Castro's Seymour Avenue home on Friday morning.

Knight arrived with a small group, and remained outside of the home. She also spoke with neighbors and thanked them for their help in the May 6 rescue.

Amanda Berry and her father went to the house on Tuesday, and her father thanked neighbors for aiding in her rescue.

Neighbors tell Reporter Ed Gallek that Gina DeJesus has also returned to the home on Seymour.

Castro was sentenced to life in prison, plus 1,000 years, for kidnapping and sexually assaulting Berry, Knight and DeJesus while holding them captive in his Seymour Avenue house for over a decade. 

As part of Castro's plea agreement, the Seymour Avenue house will be torn down in the near future.
