NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – One of the three women held captive in a Cleveland home for nearly ten years made an appearance in the Mahoning Valley Tuesday night. Gina DeJesus threw out the first pitch at the Scrappers baseball game at Eastwood Field.

DeJesus disappeared in 2004 at the age of 14. She was reunited with her family in 2013.

Before she threw the baseball, a video played on the scoreboard screen at the field. The video told the story of her captivity and escape.
