iStock/Thinkstock(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Three missionaries serving in Liberia during the recent Ebola outbreak returned to the United States Sunday evening.

Among the three people on board the private charter en route to Charlotte, North Carolina, were David Writebol, Nancy Writebol's husband. Nancy, who was infected with Ebola in Liberia, is currently in isolation in an Atlanta hospital.

Bruce Johnson, president of SIM, said David Writebol looked physically healthy and had no symptoms.

Johnson said the missionaries were brought back because, "They needed a break physically, emotionally. They have watched people die from this dreadful disease."

The three people are being quarantined until doctors are ensured that they have not contracted Ebola.
