BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A journalist and Cambridge native returned home Tuesday after being held hostage in Syria for 22 months.
Peter Theo Curtis, 45, was released by captors two days ago after almost two years as a hostage of Syrian militants. He was reunited with his mother Tuesday night at Logan Airport.
"I've been so touched and moved, beyond all words, by the people who have come up to me today -- strangers on the airplane, the flight attendants and, most of all, my family to say welcome home," Curtis said in a release.
His mom said she is "indebted" to US officials and others for her son's return home.
