Watch: Empey is first wounded Mormon missionary to return home

One of the four Mormon missionaries wounded in the March 22 Brussels airport terrorist bombing is home.

Joseph Dresden Empey returned home Wednesday evening after he was released from University Hospital, an LDS Church spokesperson confirmed via his parents.

Two homemade videos released Wednesday night show a police escort leading the family vehicle in a parade-like atmosphere to the house in Santa Clara, Utah. Dozens of well-wishers applauded and cheered as he arrived.

Empey remains under a doctor's care.
