DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. – A Dearborn Heights man held captive for six months was reunited with his family Tuesday.

A plane carrying 54-year-old Sam Farran landed in metro Detroit Tuesday night.

Farran and another American man had been in captivity since late March, when they were detained by rebels.

The two were released over the weekend and now Farran's family will see him back home.
