NORWALK - The ship captain and activist from Norwalk who had been detained in Russia for the past three months is back at home in Connecticut today.

Peter Willcox was one of the 30 activists with Greenpeace arrested by Russian authorities in September.

The group was protesting oil drilling in the Arctic.

Charges were officially dropped against all of them last week.

Willcox says he plans to take around two months off now that he's back to spend time with his family.
