ELIZABETHTON, TN (WJHL) -

If everything goes as planned, Amanda Berry's family from Tennessee will be in Cleveland by midnight.

Berry's grandfather, along with three cousins, left Elizabethton just before four o'clock Friday afternoon to head up to Ohio to see Berry.

Police rescued her, her six year-old daughter and two other women Monday night after Berry called 911. Police say Ariel Castro held her for more than 10 years in that home.

Although Berry's grandmother and dad weren't able to make the trip up north today, they're hopeful Berry will visit Northeast Tennessee no later than this summer.

It'll be a quick turnaround for those who did go. They'll return to Elizabethton Sunday night. Still, after more than a decade of waiting, the trip will be worth every minute.

"It'll be great," her grandfather Troy Berry said before leaving. "Ain't nothing like face-to-face. She's going to start crying. That's what she always does. Both of us, we break down easy."

Berry's grandfather says the first thing she asked him about when they talked by phone Tuesday was a 1986 Limited Edition Chevrolet Monte Carlo. That model car was made the same year she was born. Her grandfather promised it to her long before she disappeared.

"The first thing she said, 'Do you still got my car?'" Berry said laughing. "That lit up her world when I told her it was still sitting there."
