NORWALK, Conn. -- Norwalk native Peter Willcox, captain of the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise, has officially been released along with the rest of his crew by Russian authorities and is en route back to the United States.

Willcox and his crew, dubbed the "Arctic 30" by Greenpeace, were held in Russian prison for 100 days after staging a protest near a Russian oil rig in the Arctic Ocean before they were granted amnesty on hooliganism charges earlier this month.
