NEW YORK (AP) — The brother-in-law of one of the Americans released from an Iranian prison says his wife is relieved to finally be with her brother again, and they are just enjoying catching up.

Shane Bauer’s brother-in-law Nate Lindstrom tells CBS’s “The Early Show” that his wife, Nicole, hadn’t spoken to her brother in two years.

Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer arrived Wednesday in Oman after being released under a $1 million bail deal. They had been in Iranian custody since 2009.

Lindstrom says his wife spoke to him from Oman on Thursday morning via Skype. He says there was no talk of when Bauer, Fattal and their families would return to the U.S., adding “everybody is just kind of living in the moment right now.”

He says “everybody is really happy to be together.”
