BOISE, Idaho. - Three of the eight missionaries that had been detained in Haiti for three weeks have returned to Idaho.
     
Nearly 200 people holding balloons and signs greeted Carla Thompson and Corinna and Nicole Lankford with cheers and hymns when they arrived at the Boise airport early Friday morning.
     
Corinna Lankford cried as she hugged one of her children and noticed his missing teeth had begun to grow in while she was jailed.
     
The women said they were praying for Charisa Coulter and Laura Silsby as they remained in the Haiti prison. Corinna Lankford said she had no regrets about the trip.
     
The eight missionaries were released Wednesday and flew to Miami. Some of their colleagues traveled on to Kansas City.
