The two younger Utah missionaries hurt in last week's Brussels bombings have returned home.

Mason Wells, 19, and Joseph Empey, 20, have returned to Utah, where they are being treated at an area hospital, according to a statement released Tuesday by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The two men have been released from their missions.

Their families "expressed their profound gratitude for the concern and prayers offered by many during the past week," said church spokeswoman Kristen Howey.

Wells, of Sandy, and Empey, of Santa Clara, were hurt last week when bombs rocked the Belgian capital's airport. They were serving in the faith's Paris Mission and suffered serious injuries.

A third injured missionary from Utah, 66-year-old Richard Norby, of Lehi, is still in a Brussels hospital. He will be brought to the United States for additional care and will be released from his mission, in the near future, according to a church statement.

A fourth LDS missionary, 20-year-old Fanny Rachel Clain, from Montelimar, France, also was hurt in the attacks. Clain had cleared airport security when a blast occurred. She was on her way to serve an LDS mission in Ohio and had minor injuries.

She will resume her missionary service in the United States when she is "fit enough to do so," according to the church.

"These missionaries and their loved ones have all been through a traumatic experience. They have each borne it with faith and fortitude," Brent H. Nielson, executive director of the Utah-based faith's Missionary Department, said in a statement. "We are proud of all of them."
